International Wallpaper Week 2018: Design and Decorate Challenge


For the first stage of the challenge, you will have to design your own wallpaper and post it in to Dulux Academy in Slough, by the 21st September.  This design element of challenge requires you to submit a wallpaper design of your choice on a 1 metre length of standard 1200 grade lining paper. Designs can be produced using a range of medium including hand drawing, computer aided design or painted. You should include how your repeat would work on the full design e.g. straight match or offset and be mindful that your design/image will be repeated through the roll.  

Your design must be original and not infringe any Copyright agreements. 

The address is: Dulux Academy, Petersfield Road, Slough, SL2 5DS.

If you pass the first stage, on 5th October you will be invited at the Dulux Academy in Slough to take part in a wallpaper installation element, as the second part of the challenge. 

The winner will have their wallpaper printed by Graham & Brown, they will also enjoy a factory tour at their home in Blackburn, as well as a luxury overnight stay for 2 people courtesy of the Dulux Academy. There will also be prizes for the 11 runners-up.

And because Dulux Academy is celebrating all things wallpaper, between 1-7 October if you book any wallpapering course at the Academy you get 50% off, make sure you use the exclusive IWW50 code when you book online.
