Design your own shipping poster!

If the posters in the Maritime Museum’s Sail Away exhibition | have inspired you then it’s your turn to get creative! Design your own shipping poster and send it to the Museum for our online gallery. Your design could win a prize!

You can use any method you want to create your poster – draw it with good old pencil and paper, paint it, make a collage, design it on your computer, or use an app on your smartphone.
