Creative types in Longford get ready

The search for Longford’s up-and-coming creatives is on as One4all, Ireland’s leading gift card company, launches its annual ‘Design a Gift Card’ competition.

Now entering its fifth year, the competition gives artists across the country the incredible opportunity to get national exposure for their designs.

The winning design will be turned into a gift card and sold in An Post outlets nationwide and online at www.one4all.ie in 2018.

One4all’s ‘Design a Gift Card’ calls on budding artists, illustrators and designers in Longford to design a unique gift card and carrier inspired by the theme of ‘Happiness’.

The 2017 judging panel consists of some of Ireland’s best-loved creatives including internationally acclaimed fashion designer, artist and printmaker Helen Steele and esteemed street artist and art teacher Joe Caslin who has drawn attention for his thought-provoking murals including ‘Cladagh Embrace’ - the same-sex marriage mural which appeared on Dublin’s South George’s Street.

Rounding off the judging panel for this year’s competition are Jerry Kelly, CEO of Tweak.com and Aoife Davey, Group Marketing Manager at One4all.
