Design an Ad

The Guernsey Press is delighted to once again offer schools the chance to participate in our Design an Ad competition.

Use the links on the right to download briefs and to view the various categories.

An entry form must accompany each entry. Click here to download it. (PDF format)

Again this year we are allocating a limited number of design briefs to each school.

We hope this will help students, resulting in them achieving a first, second and third for each sponsor an advertisement is designed for.

We believe that the challenges set to students mean that there are many positive educational benefits to be had.

Local businesses also appreciate this opportunity to interact with youngsters in a practical learning experience and it's a great opportunity for our young designers to see their work published.

We are delighted to that the Guernsey Press will be providing £150 each for the two schools attended by the Senior and Junior Designers of the Year.

Prizes for the winners in each category will comprise of vouchers courtesy of Holeshot and HS2.

Advert briefs should be studied carefully. Our judges will assess the "fit" of the finished work with the brief.

Please note that all entries in all categories must come via schools.

As each school now has designated advert briefs it is important that designs for these sponsors only are created.

We are grateful to these sponsors for their invaluable support and therefore ask that they each receive an appropriate number of entries.

Entries should arrive at our Braye Road, Vale offices marked Design-an-Ad no later than 5.00 p.m. Friday 10 May, 2013.

The presentation of trophies will be as follows:

Juniors - Tuesday 11 June, 2013, 4.00 p.m., at St Pierre Park Hotel.

Seniors - Wednesday 19 June, 2013, 4.00 p.m., at St Pierre Park Hotel.

Publication of the special newspaper is scheduled for Wednesday 10 July 2013. If you have queries please do not hesitate to contact us
