Cora of Bishop Gore School entered the Dawsons Estate Agents competition in October to see her design wrapped around Dawsons newest fleet car this November.
“We held the social media competition throughout October inviting any young person to submit a design using the blank canvas of a white ‘VW up’ car. Whilst we were overwhelmed with the entries received from local schools, girl guides and scouts and other local community groups throughout Llanelli and Swansea, Cora’s innovative design stood out greatly with her use of paint and imagination. We thank all children who took part and urge all children to submit designs when we host similar competitions in the future.”
Both Cora and Helen (Bishop Gore’s head teacher) were so proud to see the design on the car when Dawsons visited recently. When Cora was asked how she came up with her design she answered:
“As it’s an estate agency, I thought a key idea would be a good as it links the design to houses. I’m very proud to have won the competition and I felt very excited to see the car as it’s my own design.”
Mrs Helen Bergum also commented: “We are very proud of Cora’s achievement. Her creativity and enthusiasm for art have been magnificently embodied in this design. It’s fantastic for Cora and the community in Swansea to be able to see her design on a daily basis.”
Dawson’s company car fleet has become something of a blank canvass for local artists and photographers to show their work of late. Since early 2016, Dawsons have wrapped their fleet with a number of unique and innovative designs from children’s drawings (competition designs), the work of two local photographers who we spotted on social media, local maps and throwback photos supplied by a local author. We will be on the lookout for even more designs in 2019, so watch this space and keep your eyes out for the fleet in your local community.
