Each year we bring together a growing community of incredible talent with our popular Slowdown Art Comp. At the start of July we put out an open call on Instagram for artists to showcase their work with the hashtag #slowdownartcomp.
Featuring over 10,000 entries in its first two years, the competition has been a great launching pad for emerging artists to get their work out to the world. We select twelve winners each year, which are all woven into a blanket and released one per month the following year. The winners all receive cash prizes and of course their very own blankets!
