Merseytravel has announced the winners of its annual Art on the Network Competition for 2011.
The third annual Art on the Network competition, which focused on poster art, offered artists from across Merseyside the chance to showcase their work to thousands of commuters and visitors, with the winning entries being incorporated into limited edition Merseytravel publications.
The winner of of the Modes of Transport category was Daniel Lindsay of Skelmersdale for his piece entitled 'Connecting People', Lawrence Langton from Hale Village won the Information category with his submission ' Hale Village 82A' and David Williams from Wallasy took the Attractions and Days Out category prize for his work 'Discover Liverpool'.
Each of the three winners received a £500 cash prize and will also receive a commemorative copy of the publication featuring their winning entry.
Councillor Mark Dowd, Chair of Merseytravel said: "This year's competition was slightly different, by just focusing on poster art it challenged the artist to come up with an original idea within a tighter confine than in previous years and once again the people of Merseyside did not disappoint!
We had some highly creative entries and we are delighted that the winning submissions will soon be seen by thousands of people as they travel across the network."
The 2012 Art on the Network competition will be launched in April 2012 - further details will be available at www.merseytravel.gov.uk and www.artonthenetwork.co.uk or you can follow us on twitter.
