Confidence Playtext Design Competition

Confidence Judy Upton

For every new Boundless production, we produce a programme playtext which will usually include the artwork from the show as a cover design.  This time round however, we’re reaching out to you to help us out.

Boundless Theatre is seeking submissions to our Instagram based competition for the design of the playtext cover of Confidence by Judy Upton. The winning design will be printed by our publisher Methuen and distributed to bookstores, and online as well as at Southwark Playhouse where the play will run from the 23rd of May to the 16th of June.

This is a unique opportunity for people to showcase their talent, engage a diverse, young adult audience and have their design work professionally showcased.  You will be invited to our official opening night and feature in a special meet the designer film.

The play is set in 1998 and we’re excited to see what that might inspire in the designers who submit to the competition.  Have a read of the play, the copy for the production and look around on our website as well as on our social channels @boundlessabound

The competition is open to students at any age and the deadline for entries is 20th April 2018.

We’ve put together a whole host of information for you which can be downloaded below and don’t forget to email to request your copy of the play so that you can get working on your design.

Good luck!
