Making Christmas cards, draping trees with tinsel, walking down cold streets and seeing the lights glittering in the windows. Hot buttered crumpets on chilly mornings and hearty stews in the dark evenings. The Coca-Cola Christmas advert. The glee in finding a perfect present for that special someone. The Muppets Christmas Carol. Surrounding ourselves with the people we love the most. Spicy mulled wine, big chunky scarves, red cheeks and, of course, mince pies!
We had some great fun judging all your wonderful entries this morning especially with Christmas only a few more sleeps away!
There were some beautiful designs but unfortunately not all of them
followed the brief and demonstrated Coming Together At Christmas. The
entries which really stood out for our judges described what it is about
Christmas that makes it such a wonderful time to spend with family and
The winning entry above by Lizzie did just that with these adorable
characters which had all our judges gushing. Congratulations Lizzie!
A wonderful scene captured by Mark who has a beautiful and stylish illustrative style. Well done Mark!
A huge thank you to everyone that took the time and effort to enter and
we sincerely appreciate all that goes in to these designs. Following
briefs is at times tricky and Christmas is such a special time of year
and very personal to capture. There were some wonderful designs
submitted which we absolutely loved but unfortunately didn't quite meet
the brief - however there is always a next time! On behalf of the
Tigerprint team I'd like to thank you all for a fantastic year of
amazing designs through the Tigerprint Competitions. I can honestly say
its one of my favorite parts of the job. Next up we have the Spots and Stripes Competition
which will take us into the new year when we will be announcing some
very exciting news along with lots of new competitions for 2013. Wishing you all a very wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year! Vic & The Tigerprint Team
