Free to enter


We are looking for bold and innovative designs for a range of new souvenirs to produce and sell in the Museum Shop, as part of the Reading Abbey Quarter Project.

Submissions should include three provisional ideas and a small selection of your previous work. Your ideas can range from a design that will work on a small memento such as a keychain or magnet to something that could be applied on homeware. We would also be interested in the successful applicant developing a children’s logo. Please drop these off at our Reception or by email.

This is not only an amazing opportunity to showcase your work to the public but a cash prize will also be awarded.

Reading Abbey and the surrounding Quarter has seen a long history with many illustrious figures and witnessed many historical events.  The Reading Abbey Quarter Project will culminate in the reopening of the Reading Abbey Ruins in summer 2018.
