Oxford Bus Company ‘Brand The Bus’ Competition Hots Up

Oct 25 2018

More than 1,800 votes have been cast for entries to the Oxford Bus Company’s unique ‘Brand the Bus’ competition.

The competition offers people the chance to nominate their favourite good cause to be branded on a double-decker bus. Since launching the competition, a month ago 15 entries have been made by local good causes and charities. The winner will have their logo and messages proudly displayed all over an Oxford Bus Company bus which will operate on its City services.
With the competition intensifying residents are being reminded there are just six weeks left to enter a short video or PDF presentation about their best loved good cause or charity, or to vote for an entrant.

Current entries are from the Girlguiding Oxfordshire, OXSRAD, UNICEF, Sands, Kerala Relief Fund, Footsteps Foundation, OASIS, Friends of Oscar, Seesaw, Oxford Hub, the Gatehouse, Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust, Helen & Douglas House, World Cancer Research Fund UK and Earthwatch. Phil Southall Oxford Bus Company Managing Director said: “Our ‘Brand the Bus’ competition has really captured the public’s imagination and I’d encourage as many people as possible to get involved. The quality of the entries has really impressed us, and it has simply served to remind us there are so many fantastic good causes doing such valuable work across the county. It’s going to be difficult to pick a winner.

The 10 entries that are deemed best according to a public vote will be shortlisted and examined by a judging panel. Prizes will be awarded to the competitors who have, in the panel’s opinion, fulfilled the brief to the highest standard. The winning organisation will be invited to work with the Oxford Bus Company to design a bus wrap featuring the brand colours, logo and messages of the charity.

Deadline for entries is 23.59 on November 30th and further details and all terms and conditions can be found here:
