Buckingham Palace has launched a competition for young artists to play a part in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations next year.
It’s now calling for original submissions of a design that will “symbolize the very first Platinum Jubilee, marking the Queen’s 70 years as Sovereign.”
The event is open to creatives aged 13 to 25, and as per Yahoo News UK, will be judged by a panel of famed graphic designers, visual artists, and design professionals.
This lineup will include Margaret Calvert OBE, Lubna Chowdary, Kerry Curtis, Yinka Ilori MBE, Gabriella Marcella, and Paul Thompson, chaired by Victoria & Albert Museum director Tristram Hunt.
The winner will be asked to join many of the events over the celebration weekend in 2022, and will even be invited to the Platinum Party at the Palace, a BBC concert being held in the Buckingham Palace. Plus, their design will be used prominently across the televised events, street parties, and even the Platinum Jubilee’s official merchandise.
Entries will first be narrowed to a longlist of 100 designs, followed by a shortlist of the Top 10, from which the winner will be chosen. All entries selected for the Top 10 will also be invited to join the celebrations, with their designs going on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Submissions will be open through July 16. For more information, check out the link here.
