Design Challenge Themes in 2018

21 December 2017 09:15


The observant amongst you will have noticed that we have come to the end of the design challenge / competition themes which I gave you for the second half of the year, back in June.  So here are the themes for the first few months of 2018.  As before, the first date is the launch date, when, as usual, I'll give you the full details.  The second date is the closing date.

Theme Date 1 Date 2  
For the Boys 04-Jan 16-Jan A design which will appeal to boys, or non-'girly' girls
Squares 08-Feb 20-Feb Plain or patterned
Easter 08-Mar 20-Mar Eggs, bunnies, daffodils, etc
Spring Flowers 05-April 17-April Self-explanatory!
Royal Wedding 03-May 15-May Crowns, wedding flowers, royal colours...
On the Road 7-June 19-June Maps, vehicles, what you see, what you do


In March and May they'll be competitions.  The other months they'll be challenges - so no prizes!

Please don't email designs ahead of the launch date for any of the challenges, just in case something has to change.  If I do ever change a theme, the original theme will be rescheduled, so don't throw away your design in disgust!

I hope this helps those who like a bit longer to mull over ideas. 

Look out for the first challenge on 4th January, and don't forget about the Children's Design Competition running until 9th January.
