Junior Designer Birthday Competition

Last updated: August 16th, 2021 Published on: August 12, 2021

Is your little one a future Vincent Van Gogh or even a Banksy? Well, look no further! We need your aspiring ‘artistes’ to help us create a new birthday card in partnership with Cancer Research UK! This is a chance to showcase your child’s creativity and talent, they could even become one of our amazing junior designers.

All they need to do is draw or paint a fun birthday-themed design… we’d love to see balloons, birthday cakes, presents, anything birthday-related would be perfect. It’s entirely up to the junior designer to decide if they would like to add text or let the picture speak for itself.

As we’re working alongside Cancer Research UK for this Junior Designer competition, 30% of the net sales will go towards the charity to help and support their vital work on research and distribution of life-saving information.

Share Your Youngsters Creativity

If your kids love getting crafty whether it’s with sketching, painting, or writing, why not help them get creative this summer and enter our competition?

We have three age group categories for submissions: Age 5 and under, 6-9 years and 10+ years. This means that your child can get involved and show their artistic side no matter their age. Help your budding artists to think up a new card design that anyone would love to receive on their birthday!

What Will They Win?

Our junior designers will have their cards published on the Funky Pigeon website for any of our customers to choose and purchase! This is really something to be proud of, they will even have their name printed on the back of the card too.
The lucky winners will also win £50 credit to spend on goodies from the Funky Pigeon website (with their guardians’ supervision of course), plus a marvellous trophy to commemorate their accomplishment!

How to Enter the Competition?

We’ve made it pretty easy to enter this one! All you need to do is email us a clear photo of their drawing or painting, along with your little one’s name and age to competition@funkypigeon.com by the 16th of September. Please make sure that your junior designer has drawn their design on an A4 sized piece of paper to make sure we can fit it perfectly into our card templates.
