Design competition - Dragons

31 March 2014 09:00

St George’s Day falls in April (April 23rd, to be precise.)  We all know about St George killing the dragon – or do we?   Check the BBC web site for some interesting (but maybe not very exciting!) facts about St George.   Or, if you prefer a nice story, you can listen to the traditional story being told by a very dramatic little girl.

In honour of our patron saint, the theme for this month’s design competition is Dragons and Other Mythical Creatures.

Create a design suitable for printing on fabric with a design based on Dragons and Other Mythical Creatures.

Technical matters:

Your design should be at a resolution of at least 150 dpi (200 -  300 is even better) using RGB colour space.

When it comes to printing, the repeat options are:  straight, centred, half-drop, half-brick or mirrored.  To see what these repeats look like, check the details from our first competition.

To enter:

Designs will need to be ready between April 10th and 13th.  We will give you details of where to upload your design next week, but uploading will take place between April 10th and 13th.

Designs will be displayed for voting from April 14th to 22nd.  The design with the most votes will win 3 metres of 100% cotton fabric (150cm wide), printed with your design.  The winning design will also be available for sale on our web site for at least 1 week after the close of voting.  The winner will be announced on April 24th.

The official bit:

By entering, you agree to our competition terms and conditions.  Please note that this competition is not endorsed, sponsored, administered by, or associated with Facebook.

You may only submit one entry, which must be your own work and based on the theme of Dragons and Other Mythical Creatures.

All entries will be displayed for public voting, unless we feel that the subject matter is inappropriate.  Copyright will remain with you, but by entering the competition, you give us the right to use your design in any way we wish on our web site and social media, for advertising purposes.

The winning design will feature on our web site and will be available for sale for a week after we announce the winner.  After that time, the designer may leave the design for sale, or remove it from public view.  The designer will be paid £2 per metre commission on any sales of the design.
