One hundred posters has gone on display at the Transport Museum, and one of them could go on to become an official tube poster.

Artists were invited to visually capture a familiar or lesser-known narrative in a single image – current or historical, real or fictional which feature London. Stories could be those seen in a film or play, heard in poetry or music, or read in literature. They may be family anecdotes, or an impression of the artists’ daily observations, or of London’s history or contemporary city living.

The exhibition displays 100 illustrations chosen from a competition that saw over 1,500 entries submitted, and chosen by an independent panel of judges.

There is also a public vote that closed on 2nd June.

The winning illustration will be added into London Transport Museum’s collection.

The exhibition, Poster Prize for Illustration 2019: London Stories is open at the London Transport Museum, and is included in the entry price.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
