BUDDING young artists are being encouraged to enter a competition which will see their work displayed to thousands across the city.

Brighton Fringe have announced an extension to their contest to find the design for this year’s family guide.

The deadline for the competition is January 25, and is open to children 11-years-old and under.

Young art enthusiasts are being asked to submit an original drawing which is inspired by the Fringe’s 2019 tagline which is “dare to discover”.

Julian Caddy, chief executive of Brighton Fringe, said: “Dare to Discover can be a call-to-action, a challenge, an invitation.

“It’s a chance to push your own boundaries and to get away from your everyday.

“You never know where you may end up.”

The winner will see their work displayed on the front of 70,000 Brighton Fringe Family Guides and they will receive a gift voucher worth £200 to spend on tickets at Brighton Fringe 2019.

They will also be handed their prize by Councillor Dee Simson, the Mayor of Brighton and Hove.

The contest is being run in association with Brighton Palace Pier, as part of their new partnership with The Fringe.

The Palace Pier will sponsor the Fringe Family Guide and will host the launch event for the brochure at Horatio’s Bar on Saturday, March 2.

The team at the pier will also be donating a host of prizes, including a wristband for unlimited rides and food vouchers.

This year’s competition judging panel includes Mark Oliver, the illustrator for the Brighton Fringe 2019 brochure, as well as Anne Ackord, chief executive of Brighton Palace Pier, and The Pebble Trust.

All entries submitted to the Family Guide competition will be displayed on the pier walkway in the month leading up to and during Brighton Fringe 2019.
