England's largest arts festival is challenging children under 11 years of age to create a piece of original cover art inspired by the tagline for Brighton Fringe 2018: "Set Yourself Free". They should use an A4 piece of paper to design what they think 'setting yourself free' 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 2018. 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, Managing Director of Brighton Fringe, said: "Life is full of people always telling you what to do, following rules and traditions. Imagine being free to be who or what you want to be. Brighton Fringe is all about the freedom to create, so have fun with it and you never know where it will lead you!"
This year's judging panel includes Child Friendly Brighton, Door22 Creative and The Pebble Trust.
The closing date for entries is Wednesday, 20 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:
