I don’t normally share competitions on my blog, but when Joules contacted me to explain their latest competition to design their new welly, I knew I needed to share it with you all:
The competition itself is really simple: you simply pick the colour of the main boot, the trim and sole and then design your pattern. You can either choose from existing prints, including the iconic hare, stag or dog prints found on current Joules pieces, or you can draw your own design which is then added to the welly design. I’m a bit of a sucker for ‘design you own’ websites – I love customising Nikes with Nike ID to get as many fun and different options I can – so I think this is a really fun competition. In case you were wondering, the print on the boot on the right is supposed to be lemons, inspired by my love for gin and tonic – drawing is harder than it looks!
If you are more creative than me, the prizes are fantastic. The best welly designer will win a luxury break worth a massive £5,000, including 3 nights in a golden oak treehouse cabin plus lots more surprises. A stay in a treehouse is one of my holiday dreams, so I would love to win this! The winning welly will also go on sale on the Joules website, with all proceeds from the sales being donated to charity via Charitably Joules.
10 runners up will also each receive a £250 Joules gift card so there are plenty of chances to win, but it’s also an easy and fun competition to enter. I’ve already played around with a few designs to give you some inspiration and I think even a scribble looks pretty cool!
You can enter the competition here and the closing date is the 4th December, so get creating!
