2019 Family Guide Cover Competition for children aged 11 and under!

Brighton Fringe announces its 2019 Family Guide cover competition!

Children from across Brighton and Hove are being invited to design the cover of the 2019 Brighton Fringe Family Guide.

England’s largest arts festival is challenging children aged 11 years and under to create a piece of original cover art inspired by the tagline for Brighton Fringe 2019: “Dare to Discover”. They should use an A4 piece of paper, in landscape orientation, to design what they think ‘daring to discover’ looks like. The final cover image will be shrunk down to A5 – so they should make sure not to write or draw too small.

The winner will see their work on the front of 80,000 Brighton Fringe Family Guides and receive a gift voucher worth £200 to spend on tickets at Brighton Fringe 2019. They will also receive a Gold Friends membership entitling them to 2 for 1 offers on events and many more benefits. Three runners-up will win two tickets to a Brighton Fringe children’s show of their choice.

Julian Caddy, CEO of Brighton Fringe, said: 

“Dare to Discover can be a call to action, a challenge, an invitation. It’s a chance to push your own boundaries and to get away from your everyday. You never know where you may end up!”

This year’s judging panel includes Mark Oliver, the illustrator for the Brighton Fringe 2019 brochure, and The Pebble Trust.

The closing date for entries is Wednesday, 19 December. Include your name, age, school and your parent or guardian’s email on the back of the picture and send your A4 artwork to:
