The 171st Manchester derby is almost upon us and we’ve got a great competition for all you artists and designers out there.
We know our supporters are a creative bunch, so we want you to #designthederby and create a poster that best sums up the occasion for you.
It could be a great derby day moment brought to life in an eye-catching, original way, or maybe something more abstract – let your imaginations run wild and show us what the Manchester derby means to you.
Our favourite design will be posted across our social media channels on Sunday before it’s immortalized and turned into an A3 poster which will be given a limited print run and then given away to supporters in the CityStore with every purchase on a matchday before the end of the season.
You’ll also receive one of the posters you’ve designed signed by the first-team!
Whether you’re a painter, a graphic designer or a photoshop whizz, we want your submissions – simply tweet us a low-res version of your design before midday on Friday 18 March and use the hashtag #designthederby so we can find it.
We'll then select our favourite and request a high-res version with the following specifications for the print run...
(Make sure you stick your Twitter handle at the foot of your design to ensure that no-one else tries to take credit for your handiwork.)
We’ll also share some of our other favourite designs across our social media channels as we build-up to Sunday’s game and, of course, give you full credit for your hard work.
