We partnered with Jason Ford, illustrator of the bestselling children’s activity book, The Super Book for Superheroes, to give children and their families the opportunity to nominate their favourite key worker to be illustrated as a superhero.
We've been so moved by the incredible work that people in the frontline services have been putting in. As a way of showing our appreciation for their personal effort and sacrifice, we wanted to offer something in return. We approached one of our long-standing authors and illustrators and asked him to donate some of his time and a lot of his talent.
We asked families to nominate a key worker who they admire or are close to be illustrated by Jason Ford in his classic superhero style. Five of the nominated key workers were chosen by Jason to receive a bespoke superhero portrait as well as an LKP voucher worth of £50. The competition ran across LKP’s and Jason Ford’s social media accounts.
'I decided to take part in this campaign so that I can show, in my way, the appreciation and gratitude that I, and I’m sure the whole country, feel towards the people that are working hard and risking their own lives to save ours' - Jason Ford
Thank you to everyone who entered and took part in our #KeyWorkerSuperhero competition. We have had some amazing entries, and the it was extremely difficult for the author to pick a winner. For this reason, all entrants will receive an illustration, as well as the winners who have already received a personal illustration. You can scroll through the illustrations below, and click on the image to enlarge.
Thank you to all the superheroes for keeping us safe! ?
