For the last few years our branding for our membership packages has remained the same. With our customers at the forefront of what we offer more and more, we want YOU to create a concept for a relaunch of our Sportscards. Our Sportscards are the hub of our customers and range from Gold Membership - Green Membership! Using graphic design, illustration, photography or digital collage to create and convey your concept, we want to see captivating and imaginative static artwork to help drive promotion and excitement socially across Sportspark's marketing and digital channels. The prize fund is £1000, full details are in our ‘prize’ section.
 
Please ensure you read the brand guidelines before entering. All submissions are to be sent to sportspark@uea.ac.uk with the subject line DESIGN COMPETITION, please use wetransfer if necessary. Please include a short description with your work as to your inspiration and journey to the final idea. ‘How can we attract new users to our memberships?’
 
Any questions can also be directed at sportspark@uea.ac.uk, full information on memberships can be found on our membership page.
If you would like a tour to aid your knowledge of the Sportspark, or the opportunity to complete some of your concept (i.e photography or illustration) please email a.ladbrooke@uea.ac.uk to arrange.
