Ten Peter Saville artworks to give away

Manchester designer Peter Saville, famed for his work with New Order, Suede and various fashion houses, has created a limited edition of 25 digital prints in support of a ‘Yes’ vote in the current Transport Referendum. We’ve got ten of them.

Copies of the print can be won by anyone who correctly answers the following question after viewing The Yes Campaign Piccadilly Freeze viral video. The video is at youtube.com

Our question is: from which platform number does the woman in a red coat walk away when things start moving? Enter the platform number in the entry form below.

Peter Saville, Manchester’s creative director, has stated his support for the proposals for a £3billion investment in public transport. He said: “The proposals for a major investment in public transport, to be funded and followed by a congestion charge, fit perfectly into the region’s tradition of radical forward thinking. It very much matches the city’s ethos as the original modern city.”

Piccadilly freeze, a short viral video posted on YouTube, saw over 70 people ‘freezing’ at Piccadilly train station. It has been created by The Yes Campaign to engage the widest possible audience in the TIF debate. If Greater Manchester’s TIF bid is successful, the city region would benefit from a £3billion investment in its transport network – to be followed by the introduction of a peak time only congestion charge.

Lis Phelan, Chair of The Yes Campaign, said: “Peter’s work with Factory Records and the Hacienda changed the way that many people thought about Manchester - a ‘Yes’ vote will do the same. We are thrilled that Peter has also put his stamp of approval on our Yes Campaign.

“We have created this short video to pass on the simple message that we want to keep Greater Manchester moving. By securing a massive investment in our city region’s transport network and improving trains, trams, buses and cycling facilities, we are not only keeping traffic moving, but making sure Greater Manchester becomes a world class city region.”

To reiterate: copies of the print can be won by anyone who correctly answers the following question after viewing The Yes Campaign Piccadilly Freeze viral video at youtube.com

Our question is: from which platform number does the woman in a red coat walk away when things start moving?
