  • It is desirable, but not essential, to include within the Artwork a representation of a mode or modes of transport (for example, this theme could be represented by illustrating the mode of transport itself, or it could be represented by illustrating the appropriate logo for the mode of transport). These modes include: Buses, Coaches, Cycling, Dial-a-Ride, Docklands Light Railway, Emirates Airline, London Overground, London Underground, river, roads, taxis and private hire, TfL Rail, trams and walking. 


  • Three cash prizes shall be awarded: Gold: £2000 Silver: £1000 Bronze: £750
  • The Gold level prize may also include the display of the Artwork as a poster on Transport for London Services, the decision about whether to display the Artwork on the TfL network shall be made at TfL's sole discretion.
  • LTM will offer one additional prize, the LTM Museum Collection Prize, with a cash value of £3,500. The original Submission, including any frame, will be retained by LTM and form part of their collection.
