Call for submissions into ‘Inspire Us’ competition

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is asking members of the local community, young and old, to help inspire the new visual look of the Council’s upcoming Good Relations advertising campaign by expressing what Good Relations means to them. 

Launched to mark Good Relations Week 2021, the new advertising campaign will run in early 2022. Over the next number of weeks, the public are urged to submit their creative ideas, stories, artwork or snappy straplines with some of the best concepts being incorporated into the final advertising campaign.

Good Relations Week is about collaboration and creating a united vision and we want to work with our communities to find out what good relations means to them.
