Your shipping poster designs

Congratulations to Patrick Ferguson, whose colourful artwork, shown here, won our competition to design your own shipping poster, judged by Angie Redhead, Cruise and Operations Manager at Liverpool Cruise Terminal. You can see a gallery of entries to the competition below. 

The competition has now closed, but if the posters in the Sail Away exhibition have inspired you to get creative then we'd still love to see your designs! 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!

If you make your poster in the 'real world' then take a photo of it or scan it, then share it with us on twitter - remember to tweet @MerseyMaritime with the hashtag #SailAway
