POSTER campaign to stop kids skipping school featuring the hip-hop and R'n'B group Big Brovaz has won an award.

The five Brixton artists put their name to the "Be Hip - Don't Hop" poster campaign for Southwark council which appeared on buses this year.

Big Brovaz's Randy is an old boy of Geoffrey Chaucer Technology College, Southwark.

He said: "It is a great cause and we are happy to take time out to help. It is a very important message."

Year 10 student Hassan Bangura from Highshore School, Peck-ham, produced the photograph on the poster as part of a project to design his own CD cover. The rest of the artwork was done by Highshore's head of art Peter Jones and colleague Kathy Black.

The campaign won "Bus Campaign of the Quarter" in awards by the sales and marketing company Viacom Outdoor UK Direct.
