T-shirt design competition: The Draw

The Draw

Spreadshirt launches the t-shirt design competition The Draw as part of the London Design Festival 2006. In partnership with the French design competition site Lafraise.com, and the UK art and design shop The Protein Store, The Draw collects top designers from around Europe in an online celebration of design and style. Winning designs will be awarded with cash prizes: £1000 for the first place, and £500 and £350 for runners-up.

Last year's competition, saw international participants from throughout Europe and the United Kingdom, with the top prize going to Trashirts. Following last year's success, the London Design Festival is again partnering to discover and promote young, creative and new designers. Says the design competition's organiser "We look forward to promoting and rewarding innovative designers. We're excited to be working with the design community in London and Europe, and see this as a great chance to get involved with new talent".

About The London Design Festival

The London Design Festival was established in 2003 as an annual international event to celebrate and promote London and the UK's creativity. By dedicating the last two weeks in September to design a diverse range of individuals and organisations are able to come together, celebrate the creative diversity of London, discover new ideas, make new connections, and most importantly, have fun.

Partners stage events and activities all over town. These events are eclectic - they might be serious seminars or exhibitions, film screenings, competitions and awards, receptions and even the odd party. They bring together people with a range of interests from lifestyle to urban regeneration to trends to digital special effects.
