Yes Poster Competition

Aidez l'EcosseIf you were asked to design a poster that inspires a nation, what would it be?

Bella Caledonia and the Scottish Independence Convention have teamed up to bring you the ultimate indyref competition.

We are looking for work that inspires and motivates, posters that will become a powerful and constant presence over the summer, helping the public to imagine a better Scotland.
