Brabantia Pimp Our Print Design Competition

Brabantia are bringing out some some new products shortly and I will be road testing those soon,but meanwhile here is a lovely competition from them.

Are you a budding designer, have you seen a design and thought, I could do better that, then maybe the new Brabantia competition is for you! There is a people's choice prize up for grabs too, so if you have an artistic eye this may be where you can shine!
Brabantia have a lovely competition, The 'Pimp Our Print' competition launches on 03 September 2013 and will be open to all budding designers across the globe regardless of age, experience or location. They are on the hunt for a design superstar to create a fresh and contemporary successor to our iconic Patrice print.
You have total creative freedom with your submission and can work in any medium so long as it can be uploaded to this website and reproduced digitally: modern art, graphics, illustration, photography, fine art, street art, textiles or montage. The choice is yours!

Anne Slaats, Communications Manager at Brabantia said: “This competition is ultimately about recognizing upcoming designers and showcasing their talents. We're looking to the latest generation of creatives to come up with a unique and fresh design that neatly captures the spirit of today, much as our iconic Patrice design did some 40 years ago.”

The popular Patrice design, created by Patrice van Uden, was launched by Brabantia in 1970. It is distinctive for its brown and cyclam flowers overlaid upon an orange background. The 'flower' element was first cut out of paper and then drafted, before being screen printed in two colours, lending the pattern a 'crafted' air. The design has proven to be Brabantia’s most popular ever.
The ultimate winner of PoP will be shortlisted by an International Design Jury and the final winner announced by Brabantia mid November 2013.
The winner will see his/her design reproduced on an exclusive range of Brabantia products, receive tickets to Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2014, flights, hotel accommodation and spending money!
All entries are displayed in the Gallery, so once you’ve submitted your entry please spread the word and encourage friends and family to vote for you! Take part here. Good luck!
