Me and my Rothar Competition

Rothar in collaboration with CandyCollective and LeCool is calling all artists, photographers, graphic designers and the like to join their “Me and my Rothar” competition.

Based in Phibsborough, Rothar accepts bicycles from the public for recycling and refurbishment. This saves on the waste created from dumping bikes, and provides cheap, healthy and eco-friendly transport for those who use the bikes once they’re roadworthy again. Rothar also gives training opportunities to young people and encourages a reuse mentality. Rothar is designed to promote social inclusion in all communities.

To celebrate bicycles, environment, local artists and community, we are looking for funky, colourful, inspirational and beautiful art. Anything with a bicycle theme and a small paragraph about it is welcome. The rest is up to you, we trust your creativity and inspiration!

The three final images will be selected by a panel from Rothar, CandyCollective and LeCool magazine. The images will be printed on postcards and distributed in the cafes around the city from April, right when the bicycle season starts! The last entries should be in before March 19th . Please send your image to info@rothar.ie.

So if you’re a creative bicycle freak, have a special feeling about your rusty and trusty two-wheeler or simply an inspired artist, please join the competition and get your name and work printed out there!
