Wraptious launches this year’s design comp

Are you a budding artist? Then enter the Wraptious design competition for a chance for your products to be sold through Wraptious for the next two years!

The latest Wraptious design competition launches today (9 May) and is a chance for emerging artists to get a foot in the door in gift retail. Artists are invited to submit three designs, suitable to use on a cushion, with the winner having their work added to the Wraptious website and getting their own spot on its stand at Harrogate Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival in July. The winning artist will also have their work promoted by Wraptious for two years. A range of industry judges (including Progressive Greetings) will help shortlist the entries, as well as stockists and customers.

“It’s a great stepping stone for emerging artists,” says Naomi Smith, marketing and account manager for Wraptious. “One of our previous winners, Katherine Williams, went on to win the Giftware Association’s Gift of the Year Award 2016 (home accessories) and another winner, Laura Clamp, has since set up her own greeting card business. Last year we had over 500 entries, and this year we’re aiming to top that. It really is a fantastic opportunity for artists, and we welcome all entries and all artistic styles. We love variety.”

You can find all the details about the competition on the Wraptious website. Entries close 21 May.
