How to take part

You can use any method you want to create your poster - draw it with good old pencil and paper, paint it, make a collage, design it on your computer, or use an app on your smartphone. Maybe go and see one of the many cruise liners that are visiting Liverpool this year |  for inspiration - and remember to pop in to see the exhibition when you do!
