The Great British Postcard Competition

Logo TGBPC The Great British Postcard Competition launched in April and challenged the UK’s creative community to design their interpretation of Great Britain in 2017 on a postcard. The competition was run through SAXOPRINT’s design platform SAXOPRINT ProStudio. The almost 300 entries displayed a wide range of topics from food and drink, to landscapes and leisure, to social and political topics like the Brexit, NHS and homelessness.

The competition came to an exciting close on September 25th, 2017 with an exclusive VIP awards evening and art auction at the Proud Gallery Camden. Head judge John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols) announced his top five postcards and eventual winner. “I was overwhelmed by some of it. It made my decision making process difficult, because I became so involved with each little postcard achievement. I just let them hit me emotionally”, said Lydon. The Grand Prize winner took home £5,000. The Peer Vote winner and Young Talent winners recieved a Wicom Cintiq 13 HD and £1,000 respectively.

The awards evening ended with an art auction benefiting The Big Issue Foundation. The shortlisted designs were also available for sale as well as all of the designs in postcard form. Almost £1,800 were raised all together. All proceeds went to support The Big Issue. SAXOPRINT will also be donating 1,000 boxes of 10 specially selected postcards to The Big Issue Foundation. These will be sold on The Big Issue Shop shortly.

Creative Awards by SAXOPRINT & WWF

Logo Creative AwardsIn the middle of 2014, SAXOPRINT launched the "Creative Awards" project together with the World Wild Fund for Nature (WWF France). The primary focus was the UN Climate Change Conference which will took place in Paris in 2015 and 2016. In the form of a competition, the goal was to launch a new campaign. Graphic artists, designers and agencies, as well as other participants, were given the task of designing a poster in A0 size on the subject of climate change. The aim was to encourage each individual to take more responsibility for the environment as well as raise awareness of the long-term effects of climate change.

The jury, chaired by renowned French photographer and environmental activist Yann Arthus-Bertrand, did not have an easy job. More than 800 creative, interesting and diverse ideas were received. The official announcement of the winners took place in the centre of Paris on 9 April. Ten awards were presented across three categories with an overall value of over €18,000. In addition, the winning campaign (image right) was visible throughout Paris in the month of June and was also presented at the UN Climate Change Conference as well as to the French senate in August.
