Edinburgh's bin lorries will soon be decorated with artwork by city pupils.

Secondary schools and youth organisations are invited to send in eye-catching designs on an anti-litter theme this month as part of a new competition run by the city council.

The winner will see their artwork driven all over the city and will also receive pound;100 of high street shop vouchers, while the two runners-up will each receive pound;50 in vouchers. The best entries will also be displayed at the council's Waverley Court headquarters this summer.

Designs must incorporate an anti-litter message focusing on Edinburgh and be submitted on one sheet of A4 paper. Entries should be clearly marked "Design Competition" and sent to Clare MacDougall, 329 High Street, Edinburgh EH11 1PN. The closing date is May 30.
