The Student Wordsmith Design Competition

About this event

Calling all aspiring designers! The Student Wordsmith Awards will be taking place in April, and they are seeking centrepieces fit for what will undoubtedly be an amazing evening. The winning design will be featured on all of the tables at the event, and the winning designer will have their name acknowledged in the event programme. The awards include an exhibition with stalls and representatives from creative sector organisations in the East Midlands, so this competition presents an excellent opportunity to showcase your talent! Entries will be accepted in any format - a sketch, a written description, even a video - but must:

  • Be based on or inspired by literature, writing or reading
  • Be easily replicated across 10-15 tables
  • Cost up to £5 to create (or, even better, be free to create!)
  • Be less than 2 foot tall when erected
  • Not involve naked flames

Please send your entries to by 5pm on 25th February 2016.
