Rachel Lillie wins cycling poster competition

The London Transport Museum and the Association of Illustrators have crowned Rachel Lillie winner of a poster competition about cycling.

Cycling in London is a competition and exhibition at the London Transport Museum featuring more than 50 works of art that interpret the benefits of cycling to people’s enjoyment of life, their health and to the environment.

Lillie, who recently graduated from Kingston University with a BA in illustration and animation, won £2000 at a ceremony last night at the museum. Her illustration will appear on the Tube and buses, and is being sold in the museum shop.

Bristol-based freelance illustrator Harry Sankey won second place and freelance illustrator and animator Mia Nilsson third place in the competition, which attracted more than 1000 entries.

The competition was conceived to help promote the introduction of the Mayor of London’s new cycling initiative Barclays Cycle Hire, which launches on 30 July.

The Cycling in London exhibition opens today and continues until 22 August.
