Liberty Open Call
Discovering the unusual and the talented
Liberty London is on the lookout for the next big talent, offering artists, creators and designers a chance to have their own unique artwork immortalised in iconic Liberty Fabric, simply by uploading a photo to Instagram using the hashtag #LibertyOpenCall
This year’s #LibertyOpenCall prize also puts the winners at the centre of the creative journey, including time spent developing the artwork alongside the Liberty London Design Team, as well as a trip to Liberty London’s fabric mill in Italy, where they will watch as the winning fabrics are printed.
With a heritage of art and design expertise stretching over 140 years, and an archive of over 45,000 original designs, Liberty London knows what makes a winning print. Once the judging panel have selected up to five winning entries, the chosen creations will take their place among a lineup of print icons, sold online and in-store, exclusively at Liberty, for Spring/Summer 2019 and become part of the eternal Liberty London archive.
Submissions across a wide range of artistic mediums are welcomed, with accepted methods including - but not limited to – digital drawing, illustration, patchwork, photography, oil paint, needlework and collage. It doesn’t have to feature florals either, so long as there’s a distinctive pattern, element of detail, and it’s a completely unique design.
So, if you’ve dreamed of seeing your work on rolls of Liberty Fabric, simply upload a new photo of your artwork to your public Instagram feed using the hashtag #LibertyOpenCall by 1 November 2018. Good luck!Be inspired
