Photographers, painters, doodlers, graphics nerds – Don’t Panic welcomes you!

We set a design brief. You submit your entry. The audience votes to determine the winner. Simple! From Don’t Panic Posters to Playstation game characters to packaging for Brahma – our diverse briefs look to inspire the next generation of artistic talents into action.


We have been working with Jim from Jim'll Paint It to judge the last poster competition of 2013. We supplied him with the 10 entries most voted for by you guys, and we are pleased to announce that he has chosen Ian M's piece with the tagline "Too much on my mind makes me panic".

About IanM's entry, Jim said:
"Absolutely love it. I really have a thing for chaos communicated in intricate and deliberate ways be it in visual art or music and this really hit the spot. A very smartly rendered representation of the sometimes overwhelming disorder of the panicked mind."

Winning Entry by IanM!
