KLC School of Design is launching a young designers competition next week and the Heart Home editors are very proud and excited to be amongst the judges. The competition is part of the ‘Design Changes Lives’ charity initiative and is in conjunction with the start of a new Foundation Degree Interior Design for school leavers.
Commencing 12th September 2016, the national competition is aimed at 11-18 year olds and will be promoted through senior schools across the country, to encourage creativity and design skills from a young age and champion interior design as a viable career option after sixth form.
Entrants will be asked to design a room for a chosen celebrity across two age categories 11-14 years and 15-18 years, the winning designer in each category will receive a student membership to the Design Museum in London, the world’s leading museum dedicated to contemporary design, and £100 in art vouchers.
The winners will also be featured on the KLC website with their design created as a 3D virtual room, and they will be invited to spend a day on an interiors shoot with S Magazine and be the subject of a feature on this blog. A runner up from each category will receive a £50 art voucher.
The judging panel will consist of myself and Arianna, and (L-R below) KLC Founder and Principal, Jenny Gibbs, renowned Interior Designer and BIID President Daniel Hopwood, plus another KLC Alumni member, Victoria Gray, Lifestyle Editor at S Magazine.
Closing date for submissions is 7th January 2017, full competition T&Cs can be found on the KLC homepage from 12th September.
