We Have Two Dribbble Invitations To Give Away!

Back in October we launched a competition for aspiring designers to win one of our two coveted Dribbble invites.

For those of you that maybe aren’t quite in the know, Dribbble is an exclusive community of creative designers from all over the globe. It’s essentially an online portfolio where they can showcase their own graphic designs, web designs, illustrations, and photography – and be endorsed by other designers.

 

To maintain a really high standard of design work, Dribbble is an invite only community.

Dribbble invitations are hard to come of these days, so we seized the moment and hosted a little competition to make sure that our tickets were given to two designers that showed some really promising work.

We were overwhelmed by the amount of submissions we got, and extremely impressed by the quality of portfolios that people were sending over.

It took us weeks to narrow it down to our top 7, and in-between a few heated debates (of the Tyra Banks kind) we finally decided on our two winners – Anne Toal and Simon Hoang.

Dribbble must’ve been impressed with the people we invited, because you guessed it, we’ve got another two Dribbble invitations to give away

If you’re a keen designer, and would like to showcase your work on the popular platform Dribbble, then show us what you’ve got!

What do do? Email [email protected]

When’s the deadline? 12pm (GMT) Monday 12th February

What should I send? Fire over a small bio and some links with work that you’re proud of, it could be a portfolio. We ask that you please do not send any zip files as we cannot open them due to security reasons.

The two winners will be announced on Friday 16th February. (*Oh, and we reserve the right to postpone this if we don’t think the submission are high enough quality*)

If you are looking for some inspiration, or what it is we’re is looking for – check out our winners and finalist from our last competition below.
