Looking for Archie Map Competition

Work experience opportunity for Graphics / Illustration / Print students for The Cary Grant Festival.
£100 prize for the design of an A2 to A6 matt fold, double sided, full colour map for our Looking For Archie: Cary Grant’s Bristol walking tour – part of the Being Human Festival in November 2017

Cary Grant, Hollywood’s most debonair star, was born Archibald Leach in Bristol in 1904. Many Bristolians are unaware that he grew up here and continued an enduring relationship with the city. This walking tour retraces Archie’s hometown haunts and uncovers Bristol’s hidden cinema history, in the places where it actually happened. Participants will be led on a guided tour of Bristol City Centre featuring the locations that inspired Archie’s journey from Horfield to Hollywood, and the spots where the Bristol Post snapped him on his many visits home, after he’d reinvented himself as Cary Grant.

The map will be of Bristol City Centre and will incorporate photographs of Cary Grant taken by Bristol Post on his regular visits home, as well as clues for participants to collect on the walk. The walk is aimed at 10-15 year olds, and their families, but needs to speak to a more general adult audience as well.

Aiming to be quite funky and/or retro/vintage.

The Festival colours are red, black and white. The photographs are black and white.

The competition will open in early Sept with a closing date of midnight, 1 October. Expressions of interest with links to online portfolio or examples of previous work invited. Email me at
