Are you a student or recent graduate? Enter our first ever Fresh Prints competition for your chance to sell your work on our website until Christmas 2016.
We want to champion fresh talent and help young creatives get a first step on the ladder (and maybe make some cash along the way!), so each print entry showcased online will receive 25% of any print sales. At the end of December, the best print design will have their work included as part of our permanent collection, and will win £100 of Cowling & Wilcox vouchers.
We are after interesting and unique graphic art that fits the Alfred & Wilde style. Bold, colourful and simple, with or without typography. All prints that fit the brief will be uploaded to the website and made available to purchase for £60, so you will receive £15 for each sale. Your print needs to be A2, and will be Giclee printed on demand so no metallics or other special finishes. We want to champion fresh talent and help young creatives get started in the industry so you must be a current student or have graduated in the last 3 years.
You can enter your work at any point over the competition, and it won't affect your chances of winning. But the longer your print is available online, the more sales you could potentially get. The winner will be announced on 31st December 2016. Your design needs to be 300dpi resolution at A2 size and should ideally be .PDF, .Ai or .PSD. Your file colour mode needs to be RGB or sRGB, but remember that printed colours may not appear as bright as they do on your screen. Please make sure that any design elements (images, fonts, drawings) are also high enough resolution from the start: if you are not sure, try zooming to 100% when sized at A2 to check the final image is not blurry or pixelated.
