Winner of our last Brochure Design Competition, by Ruth Mahoney

After the success of our last two Brochure Design Competitions, we are excited to announce our next round. This is your chance to design the next Harlow Playhouse Brochure cover! You could win... £70!

This time we would like you to create a design which celebrates 'Regeneration'.  It could explore regeneration of Harlow; the way the town is changing and evolving, how you think it might look in the future, or how it looked in the past. Or your ideas could be more conceptual and take the word Regeneration as a starting point for something completely different!

40K brochures are printed and 35K DL flyers are printed - so this is a great opportunity to get your design work seen by lots of people.

Pictured here is the winning design of our first competition, by Ruth Mahoney. 

What we need from you:

  •  A design which works with our current two cover designs;
    • • Main brochure (305mm x 105mm)
    • • DL Trifold Flyer (99mm x 210m). 
    • • For both designs: Colour profile CYMK. Resolution 300dpi.
    • • Ideally in PSD format. However high quality JPG, PNG or PDF (Print Quality) are also fine! If you would like to submit a paper copy of your design rather than submitting electronically, please either drop it in to the Playhouse or pop it in the post to us. 

Other things to note:

  • • We’d prefer you to keep the elements shown on the PSD/PDF given (black banner, logos , contact details etc, however if your design incorporates playing with these elements – we are open to interpretation!
  • • Your design should take inspiration from the phrase 'Regeneration'. How you interpret the phrase is up to you.
  • • The winner will receive a prize of £70!

The deadline for submissions is Sunday 1st April. Please submit designs for both the Main Brochure & the DL Tri-fold flyer to with subject line Brochure Competition. 

Please find template PSD files and PDFs below. Send any questions to with subject line Brochure Competition.

Good luck!
