The competition – run by the V&A, in conjunction with Buckingham Palace – is open to young people between 13 and 25 from all over the United Kingdom. Aspiring artists and designers will have the opportunity to submit an original design for an emblem to signify Her Majesty’s historic, seventy-year reign, and capture the spirit of the national festivities.

Symbolising the very first Platinum Jubilee, the emblem will feature prominently in the lead up to and throughout the celebrations in June 2022, which will include televised national events, street parties and community gatherings. The design will also be used for all official merchandise commemorating the Jubilee, and widely across digital and social media.

The entries will be judged by a panel of graphic designers, visual artists and design professionals, including Margaret Calvert OBE RDI, Lubna Chowdary, Kerry Curtis, Yinka Ilori MBE, Gabriella Marcella and Paul Thompson, chaired by V&A Director Tristram Hunt. They will be joined by experts from the V&A, Royal College of Art and the Design Museum, as well as a representative from the Royal Household.

Eligibility: Open to young people between 13 and 25 from all over the United Kingdom

What you get: The winning emblem will be announced in Summer 2021. The winner will be invited to take part in the Platinum Jubilee celebrations at Buckingham Palace, including receiving an invitation to the ‘Platinum Party at the Palace’, the BBC concert that will celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The other nine top ten entrants will also be invited to participate in the celebrations, and their designs – along with the winner’s – will be displayed at the V&A in June 2022.
