LaunchPad Competition

Welcome to our entry form for the Stationery Show LaunchPad competition.

This is a product/service design competition open to new stationery suppliers looking to break into the dynamic, design-led stationery market.

The competition aims to find up to 12 winners to showcase at the Stationery Show London, which runs on 30 April and 1 May at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.

The Stationery Show London is specialist trade show, offering a fantastic range of writing and paper products which attract the UK’s biggest retailers and most influential buyers and brands in the sector. The show creates a specific display area in the show for the LaunchPad competition winners to present their ideas to visitors.

The competition this year will be judged by four leading names from the stationery sector, all of whom are successful entrepreneurs in their own right - so their feedback on the entries and choice of who goes forward to be awarded a free exhibition stand will be worth following!  The judges this year are:

Penny Green - director Retail & Wholesale Europe for kikki-K
Jamie Mitchell - co-founder and director of illustration & quirky design-led gifts store Ohh Deer
