Secret Design Studio is very excited to announce our monthly mid-century modern inspired colouring-in competition thanks to the artist Christian Musselman.  Hopefully, it will keep the young and old in your household exploring their artistic talents during these challenging times.

There are three consecutive competitions running over September, October and November. The closing time for each competition is at midnight on the last day of each month.  Each month has three prizes, so there are a total of nine prizes.

Each person in your household can complete one entry a month, and submit it by email (no snail mail).  If you are one of the nine winners then you can receive your prize and use it without ever having to leave your home.  There are two divisions:

Division 1 (Adult) for entrants 18 years and older

Division 2 (Child) for entrants under the age of 18 (parent/guardian consent required)

There are two formats:

Digital – using any digital editing software, such as photoshop, etc

Manual – by hand using any media you want such as coloured pencils, texta pens, water colours etc.

Judging will be based on originality and creative flair and NOT on reproducing the artist’s original colours.
