And The Winner is.....

Bridget's winning snail!

It’s nearly conference time again  and I can’t wait! A chance to catch up with friends old and new; energise the creative parts of my brain; network with the great and the good (what a line up we have this year); and get involved in all the amazing competitions and promotions and  I’ve hijacked Celebrations to share with you the winners of our very first 2013 conference competition...

The Badge Competiton!

This year our panel of judges have chosen 12 winning designs from a host of fantastic entries, and one wonderful winner….drum roll please….the winning badge is….

Congratulations to Jo Franklin for her inspiring (and instructive!) words and for Vikki Gibson’s bright and engaging design. You are a pair of worth winners.

In joint second place were Paul Morton with this uplifting design:

And Julienne Durber with a very accurate portrayal of exactly how I feel:

Our other runners up were: Anna Violet in collaboration with Jo Franklin; Catherine Cooper; Amanda Lillywhite celebrating our very own Duck and Bear; Benjamin Scott, Nicky Schmidt in collaboration with Vikki Gibson and Olivia Palmer. All the wonderful designs will be on sale at this years conference here's a preview!

Well done all and thank you for taking part. Don’t forget there are plenty more competitions at the conference. Hope to see you there!

Every year Kathy Evans splendidly organises The Conference Badge Competition. She manages SCBWI British Isles finances, is South East Network Coordinator, brought Celebrations to Words & Pictures and is represented by Sophie Hicks at Ed Victor. Wow!


  1. Congratulations Jo and Viki for your winning design, and Paul and Julienne for running up! And to all the winning badge designers - I love them!

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
