As you read this newspaper, look at some of the stories and see if you could summarise them in four lines with no more than seven letters on each line.

That is the style for our ‘content bills’ which are on display outside stores and newsagents.

Scarborough’s Crescent Arts is running a project to look at two years of these news posters, such as Latest Victim of Wall of Death (geese deaths at The Sands) and Scarboro Set for Gold Rush (the potash mine investment).

If you think you can come up with a striking, engaging content bill, in the style of the image to the right, send your entries to info@crescentarts.co.uk marked News by 5pm on May 14.

You need to choose any story published in today’s The Scarborough News of May 2 or May 9. They can be humorous, intriguing or simple, as long as they capture the story. The style is in capitals, four lines, and no more than seven letters each line, excluding spaces. You can tweet entries at @crescent_arts or facebook.com/crescent.arts

Everyone is welcome to come to the Museums at Night free event on Friday May 17 from 6pm at Scarborough Art Gallery and Crescent6 Arts to see the entries.
