Creative Youth’s International Youth Arts Festival Young Designer Competition 2019 is now open.

Designers aged 16 – 26 are invited to create the visual style for IYAF 2019. The Young Designer creates artwork which is used for the 100-page brochure, relevant posters and merchandise.  

IYAF is a buzzing summer arts festival in London for young people with exciting and unusual events all day and into the night. Designers are encouraged to propose an artwork which reflects this and think about how they can get people excited about 10 days in July in Kingston when brilliant new work in Theatre, Music, Dance, Art, Circus and Spoken Word fill the town’s urban spaces. 

The winner will see their work on the front cover of 10,000 International Youth Arts Festival brochures and will win a £500.00 prize and mentoring from a professional designer. 

This is an opportunity for young designers to create the visual style for the festival they would want to see and visit. 

The closing date for entries is Monday 10 December at 5pm.
