At the start of the Jersey Evening Post and Jersey Telecom-backed campaign, we asked design students under the age of 18 to use their imagination and come up with a catchy new flyer to illustrate the Hands Off message.
Jack Seymour’s entry, using a computerised graphic design package, was a clear winner with the judges and Paul Newman, who instigated the campaign after his sister Ellen was killed in the UK by a driver thought to be using his mobile phone.
The artwork will now be made into a flyer and distributed throughout the Island by businesses, parish halls and schools.
Mr Newman said: ‘Jack’s entry stood out above the rest – it was exactly what we were looking for.
It was clear, to the point and it can be well-understood.
The message is obvious and once it is makes it onto a flyer I think it will have a big impact.’ The youngest entrant in the competition was seven-year-old Matthew Knapman, who was also a runner-up and received a Sony PSP.
