Next kids competition
I have been asked by Next to let my readers know about the latest competition they are running.
They are inviting children aged 0-16 to draw a picture showing “their wish” and upload a photo of the picture to the Make a Wish event on their Facebook page. A panel of judges at Next will choose the top fifty designs and the entrants responsible for the top designs will then be asked to submit their original drawings and join in all the fun of the competition final at Woburn Abbey on 21st December, when an overall winner will be selected. This design will be manufactured by Next, with sales benefiting the Make-a-wish Foundation.
The NEXT GENERATION children's competition isn't only about finding junior models. In association with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK , it also includes a very special opportunity for budding fashion designers.
Open to anyone up to age 16, the challenge is to create a unique and original t-shirt for summer 2010.
Entrants should sketch a design, photograph it, and then please POST THE IMAGE TO THIS EVENT TAB on or after 4th November.
Entries close on 25th November when a panel of Next judges will choose the top 50 designs.
The entrants responsible for the top fifty designs will then be asked to submit their original drawings and join in all the fun of the NEXT GENERATION FINAL at Woburn Abbey on 21st December, when an overall winner will be selected.
This design will be manufactured by Next, with sales benefiting Make-A-Wish.
- Make-A-Wish is a charity registered in England and Wales (295672) and Scotland (SC037479)
Master Craftiness is going to get his thinking cap on for this one. There is no doubt that his wish will be something very obscure. But what a brilliant idea Next!! Not are only are you inspiring children to become creative, but you might even produce some future fashion designers.
Even better is the fact that sales will benefit the Make-a-Wish foundation! I am sure I will be purchasing the winning design when it hits the shops! I just have to work on getting my Next bill down while I am waiting......
I can't wait to see the winning design!
