Take part in the IPEX Advertisement Design Challenge

IPEX Design ChallengeIPEX invites print and graphic arts apprentices, and students of any discipline, to design a visitor advertisement to promote attendance to IPEX, held on 31 October – 3 November 2017.

The challenge gives students and apprentices the chance to test their creativity and design skills by creating an advertisement that will be featured in both UK and international trade press. Not only will all shortlisted advertisements be published in leading industry magazines, they will also be showcased at IPEX 2017.

IPEX’s core theme is ‘print in action’ so the advertisement must capture this. It must also contain certain key information, please refer to the brief, but other than that, the design isn’t restricted in any other way so get creative and make it as colourful, engaging, playful, and eye-catching as possible.
