Over the last two years our friends have been responsible for some entertaining and occasionally horrifying posters (see here). They have adorned lampposts, walls, bushes and police evidence lockers. Most people like them but occasionally someone will send us an email saying "Stop being horrid to the poor fluffy council!" and "Why can't you take the high road and concentrate on the environmental message?" And occasionally they'll even say "Why not do a nice crying hedgehog reciting a shakespearean sonnet or something? THAT'S the sort of thing I respond positively to!"
Well we're not very good at that but maybe YOU are! Design us a poster along the lines of 'stop NA3', 'Save Wolborough Hills' or 'Think of the F*ck*ng crying hedgehogs you screaming evil wife-hammering compulsive lying n*bjockeys'. Oh yes: Try and make it decent and tasteful. The best one will win two tickets to see the otherwise sold-out Henning Wehn at Abbotskerswell Village Hall on February 5.
You don't need to be a photoshop wizard. You can draw it, scan it and send it. Get your child to do it, even though they're too young to see Henning. Pay them off with a monster bag of Haribo. The picture above shows a Colombian schoolgirl making us a poster under military supervision. She's going to win the tickets if you don't get a move on. Honestly, you can even make it with pasta shapes and pine cones if you like (okay, hard to scan). But there are no hard and fast rules, that's what we're saying. Except for these really hard and fast rules:
- A4 image ( 210 × 297 mm, portrait or landscape) or photo of image with A4 dimensions
- Saved as JPG, PNG or PDF at 300 dpi (or high quality well-lit photo might do)
- put www.newtonsaysno.co.uk on it somewhere
- send to email@example.com

Good luck, and möge der beste Igel gewinnen.
