Put simply, the Design Innovation awards a competition is the UK’s only designated competition that allows students to design the promotional product of the future, now
The BPMA (British Promotional Merchandise Association) have teamed up with a core selection of key sponsors to create the BPMA Design Awards Competition! This competition invites talented, UK based undergraduate design students to come up with exciting, inspiring, truly original new product ideas for promotional merchandise.
The competition itself is already in its third year, and whilst a number of universities are already involved, and the program is growing larger each year.
Promotional products have been the forefront of delivering incredible impact for brands over the decades, and with today’s economic climate, brands are looking for fresh methods to incentivise consumers and client alike to connect with their brand.
There are fantastic opportunities in our industry for talented designers. So why not enter this annual competition and stake your claim?

InnerWorkings began in 2002 because we felt there was a better way to handle print and print management. We developed a new, transparent business model that leverages our global network of suppliers and proprietary technology platform to drive data-driven decisions that lower costs, enhance efficiencies, and shorten time to market. As our strategy – and revenues – took off, we expanded the approach to include other areas of the marketing supply chain – from retail environments and displays to packaging, branded merchandise and creative execution services.
