Want to design a rave poster for ‘This Is England 90’?

Aciiiiiid! Channel 4 is giving out £1,000 prizes for artists who can create the most convincingly old school artwork

Shane Meadows is returning to his merry gang of British skins in This Is England 90, but this time he needs your help to resurrect the spirit of the second summer of love. The director and Channel 4 have launched a competition for artists to create 90s rave posters to use in the promotional campaign in the lead-up to the new television series, which sees the crew launch headfirst into the hedonism of acid house. 

According to the callout on, "judges are looking for imaginative and nostalgic poster artwork that illustrates how club culture kicked off in a big way with house, acid, drum & bass and trance dividing dance floors in the UK."

In exchange, you'll get £1,000 prize money and a mentoring session with Channel 4's creative department, 4Creative. They're giving away three big prizes, while three more artists will see their work commended with a £500 award. 

Need some inspiration? Check out our interview with ex-raver and Rave Art author Chelsea Louise Berlin here, and get some guidance from the flyers she's collected for her book in the gallery above. We've also got another bonus gallery of jungle and rave flyers. 

And if you're in need of a soundtrack to the era, press play on rave connoisseur Zomby's exclusive mix for Dazed below.
