Design competition

Time to get creative! Grab your pens, pencils and glitter glue - we want to stock up our shop for Christmas, and need your help.

This Autumn, we are looking for our supporters (and their kids!) to get creative in the name of electoral reform. We would like you to come up with your own designs on the theme of democracy – What should our democracy be like? What does it mean to you? Who are your democratic heroes? We’ll put the best ones on items in our shop ready for Christmas.

Open to all ages, young and old, and all skill levels – no design is too grand or too small, all entries will be considered. So get out your pens, pencils and glitter glue, the more creative the better!


Mug mock ups

The key is enthusiasm – whatever you want to draw, at whatever level, now’s your chance.

The best designs will feature on products sold on the new Electoral Reform Society online shop. All profits from our shop go straight back into our campaign building a stronger democracy here in the UK – and if we feature your design we’ll send it to you on a mug for free.

All entrants will also receive a discount code to the shop, as a thank you for your contribution!
