We are inviting members of the local community to produce a ‘creative display’ for the wall space situated outside Latimer Road Underground Station (see image of the space below).
This is aimed at being a community space so we would welcome a display that reflects or represents the local community but we are open to all ideas and themes. The work could take the form of any creative display such as (but not limited to) a drawing, painting, photograph, graphic (3D media), poetry, sculpture or short story.
All entries must comply with the guidelines TfL uses for its advertising policy which can be found at: http://content.tfl.gov.uk/tfl-advertisingpolicy-250219.pdf
The winner will have their work displayed at the front of the station for at least 12 months as well as another winner prize. There will also be a number of other runner-up prizes.
Guidelines for the competition
The work must be submitted as a hard copy, in sizes from A3 to A2, OR as a high-resolution (300 DPI) photograph of sculpture or other 3-D media.
The work will then be reproduced onto a vinyl panel measuring 2 metres by 5 metres and attached to the hoarding on the outside of the station (see image of the space below). Please note there will be no electricity or power available so any work using media will need to factor this in.
Work should be submitted to: TfL, c/o Ann Gavaghan, IIY2 Palestra, 197 Blackfriars Road, SE1 8NJ.
Please clearly mark your name and contact details on your work.
Work will be returned following judging, with the exception of the winning entry. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, 19 April 2020.
The work will be judged by a panel of the following:
- Representative from Justice4Grenfell
- Brenda Edwards MBE, a local resident
- The Area Manager for Latimer Road Underground station
- TfL’s Director of Diversity, Inclusion and Talent and Managing Director for London Underground
- A representative of TfL’s Art on the Underground programme
The winner’s work will be displayed at Latimer Road station for a period of at least 12 months. There will also be a prize for the winner as well as a number of other runner-up prizes.
The winner will retain all rights to their artwork, but by entering the competition will give TfL the permission to display it at its station.
The competition will be promoted to all members of the Notting Dale ward and those using Latimer Road Station. It is not open to those employed by Transport for London or the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.
If you have any questions about the competition please contact Ann Gavaghan by email [email protected] or call
In 2018 TfL engaged with a wide variety of local people in the North Kensington area, to gauge ideas for improvements to Latimer Road Underground Station. One of the suggestions made was around improving the aesthetics of the station and the possibility of involving the community in this.
We identified a site on the outside wall of the station which could be used as a space to present a ‘creative display’. This would help provide something for the community to own and to also help improve the aesthetics of the station which were both things people suggested to us.
