We need your creativity!

Updated: Sep 3, 2020

We are excited to launch our new design competition! As we are currently supporting Greater Manchester’s aim to become the first region in Europe to become a Smoke Free City, we want to show our commitment by having some new creative signage created to go in our smoke free spaces. Use your time at home to get creative, while supporting a great cause too!

After shortlisting by centre staff and members of the local community, Images of the shortlisted submissions will be uploaded to the Aquarius

Facebook page. People will then be asked to like and share their favourite submission to vote.

All ages and skill levels are welcome to submit a design.

Guidelines: Try to use bold colours, and designs with clear messaging that shows this is a smoke free space. Designs should be workable to size up to A3.

How to submit: To submit your design take a picture of it and email it to

PRIZE: £250

CLOSING DATE: 30TH September

For more information on the History Makers aim to assist in researching your submission look here -

Please be aware that in the spirit of supporting the cause, the winning design could be offered to other community venues in the Greater Manchester area, if they wanted to commit to having smoke free spaces too. The more people that are committed to the History Makers aim, the healthier our city can be!

This competition is designed to get our local community thinking about how we make Greater Manchester a smoke free city, we want to help people to talk about it and engage with the campaign. If you have an interest in getting people to stop smoking, get involved. We aren't expecting the award entries to be of a professional level and this competition isn't a brief for a professional graphic designer, it is a local community competition that is open to children, teenagers and adults that have an interest in the campaign.

Submitted designs will be shared on our social media account and also our website.
