How to enter

You can only enter in accordance with the rules of the competition as posted by Stroodles. In order to enter, you must follow the entry requirements as per below by the closing date of June 11th 23:59. Please note that Stroodles has the right to extend the closing date of the competition and announce a new date,

  • Submit a sail design that reimagines a more sustainable future and an ocean free from plastic pollutants.
  • Design needs to be portrait.
  • The background colour of the sail will be black, but don’t worry about it for your design, as we can adapt it after.
  • Your design will be featured on the right half of the sail (currently blank area, as shown in the picture)
  • The bigger your design the better! As the sail will only be seen from far away, small details won’t be seen
  • Your design should be submitted to A4 portrait dimensions, 300 dpi, with enough space to allow for cropping
  • Make sure that there aren’t any important details on the borders of your design (as we will crop the design to fit onto the sail)
  • Remember that the sail will be blowing in the wind! Take this into mind when designing your sail,as sometimes your design might bend.
  • This competition is open for anyone to enter - any age and any design capabilities! We are more than happy for designs to be drawn on an A4 piece of paper – just scan and send!
  • Please note, if the winning design is hand drawn on paper, we will work with you and a designer to create a digitised version of your artwork!
