  • I think it is totally unfair as well as unprofessional that these fabulous giveaways and contests are limited to the UK. As an American, seeing American companies contribute to the prices being awarded, then being band from participating is extremely frustrating. I realize that you are a big company and do not really care about how we feel and given that, I believe it is time to say I have purchased my last expensive magazine from the UK.

  • I was just wondering if you had to have a blog or a YouTube channel to be part of the design team. Because I have neither but I would love to enter the competition so I was just wondering I did send a message before but I didn’t get a message back. So I am hoping I’ll hear back from someone xx

    • Hi Kirsty – no, you don’t need to have a blog or YouTube channel to enter the competition or be part of the Design Team.

  • It states in the rules Kirsty the following:-

    3 Each project must be clearly marked on the back with: your name, address, email, telephone number and blog (if applicable, although not a requirement).
    No mention of you tube.
    Hope this helps. Andrea H (good luck if you do enter, xx)
