The incredible design talent of our high schoolers deserves celebration. The School of Design Innovation is offering you an opportunity to show off your creativity and connect with other talented future designers.

We are asking you to create your own comic book page. There are $850 of prizes up for grabs!

You can choose from a four, five or six-panel page. Click here to find our templates.

You have to use our templates but what goes in those panels is entirely up to you and your imagination!

From Peanuts and Garfield to Batman and Naruto, comics have told us stories and we are keen to see what stories you can tell us.

Submit your designs on YoutubeInstagram or Twitter using the hashtag #FutureDesignersNZ.

Deadline: 6th  December  2021

We are challenging you to share your creative work with the world!

You can submit anything creative you have done this year!

Many of you will be working on putting together your NCEA portfolios, and we would love to see that work!

It doesn’t have to be schoolwork, it might be:

  • a life hack you came up with,
  • a passion project
  • or just a cool way you have solved a problem

We look forward to seeing your work!

Submit your designs on YoutubeInstagram or Twitter using the hashtag #FutureDesignersNZ.

Deadline: 22nd October 2021
