Win a Sprinter or eVito van with #PoetryInMotion​

14th August 2023

Mercedes-Benz Vans UK has launched a #PoetryInMotion competition to celebrate the creative verse-atility of the UK’s amazing van community.

There are unexpected stories behind every wheel and every business, so an unexpected competition is the perfect way to celebrate them.

If you’re a ‘van lifer’, a business or charity that already relies on vans, or needs one, this competition is for you. Just share a poem, and you could win a brand new Sprinter or eVito!

The team at Mercedes-Benz Vans UK wants to hear your poems about what a van means to you. Whether it’s the unique vantage point it gives you on the UK, the people and businesses it enables you to support, or the freedom of pitching up somewhere new every day.

To enter, follow @MBVansUK on Instagram or Facebook and post your written, spoken or recorded poem with the #PoetryInMotion. Don’t worry if you’d rather hide your creative side, you can send us a private message on one of these two channels to submit your poem.

If you’re not on social media, submit your poem to with your full name, business name, business postcode and contact number.

The competition will run until 31 August and will be followed by a month of shortlisting. The winner will be selected from the shortlist and announced at a poetry slam event held on 5 October 2023 at a venue to be confirmed.
