Feeling creative?

We give away free pins with orders each month – and we’d like YOU to help design some of the ones we release in the future.

Come up with a design, send it in to us and we will choose our favourite finalists – who we’ll then post up for the final public vote.

The one with the most likes by the closing deadline will then win £500 of IC vouchers and be the FIRST community made pin in our collection. All the other finalists will bag a £50 IC voucher and will ALSO be made into IC pins in the future too.

Here are the competition requirements…

– The design should be about celebrating community video games geek lifestyle and being part of our community.
– The design CANNOT include any licensed property, or element of a licensed property, whatsoever.
– Limit yourself to FIVE colours not including the metal background of the pin.
– Each colour must be outlined by the metal colour and the coloured enamels must fill in the gaps.
– The metal background can be gold silver brass or black.
– All parts of the design must be connected to each other.
– Fine detail doesn’t work on pins so keep them simple.
– Artwork must be supplied as a standard file type
– .ai or .eps preferred but .jpg .png or .psd are fine too.

Once you’ve got your design send it to with the subject heading ‘2023 PIN DESIGN COMP’ before the closing date of 11:59pm UK time on 9th June 2023.

The judging team will then pick their favourites and then it is down to our community to pick an overall winner. Please note, our design team may tweak or adapt your design to work better as a pin.

Remember ALL finalists will get £50 of IC vouchers and have their design made into promotional pins on our store but the finalist with the most likes will bag a £500 IC voucher and their pin will be made FIRST!

AND we will also reward ALL entrants with a £5 voucher to say thank you for taking part – which will be sent once the competition closes. It’s one voucher per person, although you can submit multiple entries – we will only pick one design per person to reach the finals and only one entry will net you a £5 code.
