Clean Air Art Competition

To mark Clean Air Day 2022 Filtermist has challenged local school Bridgnorth Endowed with an art competition.

Students at the school have been invited to submit designs that capture ‘what clean air means to them’, with the winner’s artwork set to be displayed at Filtermist’s Telford offices.

Filtermist’s Director of Group Marketing, Lydia Barber​, said: “We’re looking for some original art that depicts clean air as this is essentially what our products provide.

“We sometimes struggle to communicate this visually so we thought it would be interesting to run a competition for students to bring their ideas to life and brighten up some of our plain white walls.”

The competition winners are set to be announced on Clean Air Day 2022, which takes place on 16th June and focuses on how air pollution can impact every organ in the human body.

Lydia explained: “As a business, we try to support Clean Air Day every year and we thought this would be a good chance to get young people thinking about the environment and in particular, air quality.”

Students are encouraged to let their imaginations soar as they produce designs in any format, using any media, to try to show what it means and how it feels to breathe clean air.

Art teacher, Mrs Rhodes, said: “This is a fantastic project for our students to be involved in, working alongside a company and having their artwork displayed at its headquarters.

“We have some very talented artists, and this will be a great opportunity for them to showcase their skills, as well as representing the school and strengthening our links with Filtermist.”
