Our friends at Poundshop are setting up their fabulous gift shop round the corner from us here at British Council at ICA which will run from 18th-21st December. Call for submission below, deadline November 14th 2014.

Calling all designers and creatives! Come join us at the first Poundshop to set up on The Mall!

The Poundshop has been invited to celebrate Christmas at the ICA on 18th-21st December and we are now open for submissions. We have come a long way and we are delighted to be setting up shop so close to royalty. We are looking for a range of beautiful value for money products ideal for Christmas in the price bands of £1, £3 and £5.

Brief:- Design and produce one item to retail under the strict price brackets of £1, £3 and £5.
- It must be a desirable, durable, value for money object.
- Your product must have a function as well as being an attractive / well designed object.
- You must produce a fully realised prototype for submission.

We hope you are as excited as us to celebrate Christmas at the ICA!
