Design a Gift Card Competition

Now in its fourth year, the annual ‘Design a Gift Card’ competition is back!

Design competition

If you are a third level design student, or a member of the public with a passion for design, this is your opportunity to showcase your talents! The One4all Design a Gift Card competition was established to recognise and reward Irish design talent, whether you’re a budding artist, keen photographer or design student. The winning design will be produced as a special edition One4all Gift Card and sold and distributed through One4all sales channels, making a fantastic inclusion in the portfolio of any budding designer.

The Brief

The theme of this year’s competition is… ‘Happiness’! As purveyors of happiness, we are looking for designs to capture the feeling of happiness by creating their interpretation of what happiness is. Participants are asked to submit their design along with a 2-page report detailing the inspiration behind their design. Click here to view full design brief.


The winning design will receive a Macbook Pro, and their gift card design will gain nationwide exposure, being sold in Post Offices nationwide and through the One4all website. Five runners up will also receive a €100 One4all Gift Card with their own unique which will also be sold online.
