1st spot prize – 6 months socks subscription RUBY COUNIHAN, 10 years old

HOW TO DESIGN
Please use the template available here
There is no limit on the technique, designs can be hand drawn, designed on a computer – whichever works. Please remember that colour scheme must be limited to 5 colours.
Avoid complex details or gradients as these are quite difficult to translate onto a sock.
AND THE WINNER IS…
We would like all of the young artist to have fun while designing their novelty socks. There is no theme, design what you think would be best for yourself and your class mates. Please note, that due to technical reasons design may get changed slightly going into production.
IF I SUBMIT A DESIGN, WILL YOU OWN THE RIGHTS TO IT?
No, we don’t own the rights to the entered designs. Once the winner is chosen, we will contact the parents/guardians of the artist before moving forward with the production.
There is no additional compensation to the winner beyond the prize.
If we receive a submission it means that parents/guardians of the artist are aware of the submission and take responsibility for informing/educating the child about the rules of the competition.
Organizers will pick one winner of the 1st prize and two winners of the spot prizes.
Once announced, the organizers’ decision will be final and no appeals will be accepted.
Prize cannot be exchanged into cash.
Irish Socksciety reserves the right to change the t&c at any time.
