Join the Design and Decorate challenge

Join the Design and Decorate challenge

The Dulux Academy Design and Decorate challenge is a game of two halves. Firstly, participants will have to design their own wallpaper and send it in to the Dulux Academy in Slough, by the 21st September. The designs will be judged, and 12 entrants will be invited to the Dulux Academy on 4th October to take part in the second stage, wallpaper installation. Finalists will be awarded points both for their wallpaper design and their performance in the application challenge, before the winner is selected.

The entrant with the highest total of points will be crowned the 'The Dulux Academy Design and Decorate Winner 2018' and have their design printed for real by supplier partner Graham & Brown. They will also enjoy a factory tour at the home of Graham & Brown in Blackburn, as well as a luxury overnight stay courtesy of the Dulux Academy.

No finalist will leave empty handed, as there will also be prizes for the 11 runners-up and goody bags for all decorator attendees!

We hope you are ready for a week of all things wallpaper and are up to joining the big challenge. Meanwhile, here is the story of Select Decorator Barrie Thompson the winner of the 2017 Design and Decorate challenge: LISTEN. Could you be the next Select Decorator to take the crown?

Additionally, some lovely footage from IWW 2017 created by Graham and Brown can be watched here.
