Could you encapsulate everything the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain stands for in a single striking poster? We’re looking for great images – and words – that sum up everything we’re about. There will be a range of fine prizes (still to be confirmed) but more importantly you’ll be helping to spread the word about who we are and what we’re campaigning for.

To enter, all you have to do (apart from design the thing of course) is post your entry up somewhere online – blog it, tweet it, stick it on flickr – and then let us know by emailing Or, if you prefer, you can email it to us, or submit it straight to our site here using the Entry Form (you need to be a member to use this page but it’s free to join).

We’ll then repost it on our site, with a link back to the original post. The winning design will be used prominently on our site and in our publicity materials. The winner and runners up will also receive CEoGB merchandise and, of course, Fererro Rocher.

We’re looking for … well, the truth is we don’t exactly know what we’re looking for, which is why we’re throwing it out to you. We’ve had a shot with the images you see here, but we’re sure that something much better could be done. The only restriction are that you have to include our logo (available from Flickr and the tagline ‘making riding a bike as easy as riding a bike’. As for the rest, we want something that captures what we’re about. And if you don’t know what we’re about, have a look at our Manifesto and Mission Statement, or our FAQs.

Winners will be selected by the Embassy team from a shortlist of the most popular images submitted on our site. The competition closes on the 31st August, giving you a whole month to come up with a fabulous idea, but remember months are often a lot shorter than you think, so now’s the time to get cracking.
