We appreciate that our competition entrants spend a lot of time on their entries and they want to showcase their great styles and fantastic talent.
However, please be aware that you are not allowed to submit a design that is for sale or has been sold to another party. Tigerprint can only accept original or unpublished work. If you submit an unsuitable entry we won't be able to chose you as our winner.
We are happy for you to use work from your portfolio or work that has been shown on your blog but if anything has been marketed for selling we can't accept this due to our exclusivity with Marks and Spencer.
Take some time to read the brief and fully understand what it is we're looking for. Think about the key words or phrases, the genre and who the customer is. This month's brief is about humour and creating faces in unusual or everyday spaces. Take time to look around your environment and remember to take really good photos. We are happy to accept images that have been taken on good quality smartphones and compact cameras and digital SLR's.
This month our winning entry (see above) has been created by Claire Parker.
The judges felt Claire's design has a really fresh colour palette and everything about it reminds you of spring. The repeat pattern flows organically and creates a subtle shape. Claire has really considered the placement of the pattern.
Congratulations, Claire and we look forward to working with your design.
Jo has used a great mix of colour and we love her bright palette. The combination of abstract marks has created a really engaging pattern, Jo has been able to create some really interesting textures using markers. Well done Jo.
The Judges really like the detail in Nikita's illustration, the style is very on trend replicating botanical florals. Again, the pattern flows organically and we like the way the flowers overlap. Overall the design is very sophisticated. Well done Nikita.
The Judges like Zanna's quirky illustration style, the hand-drawn look is very current. There are some great icons within the design and these could be mixed and matched to expand the design. Well done Zanna.
Congratulations to Claire, Nikita, Jo, Zanna and Yana and a very big thank you to everyone who entered the competition.
The next competition, Eye Bombing will be open for submissions shortly.
