Aims of My Competitions

  • To raise the profile of textiles and to get people talking about it
  • To motivate young people to think about textiles and to have a go
  • To provide prizes that provide schools with resources and equipment that helps them develop their curriculum
  • To provide teachers with project ideas, homework and activities that support curriculum development
  • To develop design skills, including: working to a design brief, interpreting a design theme, using inspiration, avoiding stereotyped and literal interpretations
  • To develop making skills, including: manipulating and handling materials, use of equipment, producing quality outcomes

Note: Competitions are open to entries from the UK mainland. Entries from outside the UK mainland are accepted but these won’t be entered into the official competition and they can’t win any of the prizes. If any outstanding entries from outside of the UK mainland are received they will be acknowledged by being featured on the website as a separate part of the competition.
