Design the cover image for Dyslexia Scotland's August issue!

Dyslexia Scotland are looking for something that illustrates how dyslexia affects people all over the world. Nearly 800 million people on our planet are dyslexic - fact!

To help you think about how to come up with a design, they have organised 3 free online workshops which will help you think about the design process.  The design process is about coming up with an idea, showing it to others and making changes to make it a winner. 

You don’t need to come to a workshop to enter the competition, but if you’d like to find out more about how to come up with a top idea, they have workshops on 5, 6 and 7 July from 10am - midday on Zoom. 

You only need to come to one.  The workshops will be run by Creative Briefs and are for children and young people with dyslexia up to the age of 16.  You don’t need to live in Scotland to take part.

Book a workshop:

Book 5 July 10am - midday 

Book 6 July 10am - midday

Book 7 July 10am - midday
