The BBC has celebrated the launch of the new series of Peaky Blinders with a campaign made up of fan art.

As previously reported, in June the broadcaster put out a call for new creative from amateur enthusiasts with interest in the show.

They are now preparing to launch the campaign, which will see a number of OOH locations feature creative made by the fan community.

The campaign will run from 12 August on murals, fly posters, digital, online, and social.

The BBC say they received 1,200 entries, with the final creative selected by an in-house panel.

The winners of the competition will each receive £1,000 for the use of their work.

Season five will be the first time Peaky Blinders has been moved to BBC One.

The cult show stars Cillian Murphy as the head of the Shelby family, following their violent rise through post-Great War Britain.
