Tinners' Way Children's Art Competition - Design our Waymarkers!

Please note that due to some individuals having problems downloading the template for this contest, we have extended the closing date to 28th November 2021 and entrants can now draw their own template - see details below!

A waymarker is something placed out in the landscape to help people follow particular paths or routes. We have a number of granite waymarkers ready to go out in the Penwith landscape, and each will bear a plaque pointing the way – and we would like you to help us design the plaques that will go on them!

We’d like a design that celebrates the Penwith landscape, particularly the landscape around the Tinners’ Way - an ancient trackway that passes a lot of wildlife, farmland, great views and even ancient sites that are thousands of years old! You can find out more about the Tinners' Way on our interactive StoryMap here.)

To enter the competition complete the following steps:

  1. Download and print out the template for the waymarker. (Please open the document for editing to allow the template to align properly.) Or, if you cannot download the template create your own - you need to draw a circle and include an arrow in the middle.
  2. Create your artistic design within the circle template. This is the same size that the plaques themselves will be. You can use pens, pencils, paint or other artistic methods to create your design (but please don’t use photographs!).
  3. Fill in the submission form to accompany your entry (let us know if you can't download it!)
  4. Send your designs to us! You can either scan or photograph your design (or ask an adult to), and email it to us with the entry form at, or post your design with a printed our version of the submissions form to our office at: Penwith Landscape Partnership, The Office Above the Dog and Rabbit, North Row, St Just, Cornwall. TR19 7LB. If you are posting us your entry, please write your name on the back of your design as well as on your entry form. Please note that we will be unable to return designs posted to us, so if you would like to keep your artwork do please email it to us instead!

Please ensure that all submissions are sent to us by midnight on 28th November 2021.

2018-08-09 Team Away Day 08Some tips for designing your entry

  • Take your inspiration from the Penwith landscape – if you’re not sure what to do, think about the thing you love most about Penwith and go from that!
  • Waymarking signs point people in the right direction, so it's important to incorporate the arrow in your design to help people find the way. We have included one on the template to help with this.
  • Keep it quite simple – very intricate designs are lovely but may not reproduce well on the waymarkers.


The winner will have their design reproduced on our waymarkers, and will also receive one of the plaques with their design to keep. 

All entrants will also receive a book including all the entries of the competition, so that everyone who enters gets their design printed.

We would also like to showcase the entered designs in an online gallery on our website, and on our social media channels. Whenever we use the designs, the artists will always be credited, and they retain copyright ownership of their work.
