THE JAMES WALKER HELMET DESIGN COMPETITION 2013
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO DESIGN THE HELMET THAT RACING DRIVER JAMES WALKER WILL WEAR AROUND THE WORLD WHEN HE RACES IN THE 2014 SEASON.
The two winning designers will WIN two tickets to one of James’ UK 2014 races, a scale replica helmet featuring their winning design, a certificate and an exclusive interview with Gallery Magazine.
JAMES WALKER IS A SUCCESSFUL, JERSEY-BORN, BRITISH RACING DRIVER CURRENTLY COMPETING IN THE WORLD ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS.
Each year, James has a different design for his race suit and helmet, featuring the logos of his sponsors. His helmet especially gets a lot of coverage when out on the track, which is why helmet design is a big and important part of his sponsorship deal with IWI Watches.
James is passionate about engaging with the Jersey community and local talent, both on and off track and is offering local students and adults the chance to create two designs for his 2014 race helmets. There are two competition categories – for school age 12 to 17 and for adults 18+. One winning design from each age group will be professionally produced and he will wear them throughout his global 2014 racing schedule.
The theme of the helmet is James’ sponsor, IWI Watches. IWI Watches are English luxury watches of the highest quality, individually handmade from perfectly engineered parts, in house, in England. Their watches are designed and crafted with inspiration from a history of over 300 years of English watchmaking.
To find out more about the brand go to:
www.iwiwatches.com. Your challenge is to capture the essence of IWI watches on James’ helmet. The only stipulation is that their logo is included somewhere in your design. The logo is detailed below and can be downloaded from the Gallery competition page online: www.gallery.je/jameswalker
The competition is open from 1st September to 1st November 2013 giving you two months to create your ideal design and send it in. Entries will be accepted in print or digital format. Once the competition closes, our panel of judges will review every entry and decide on one winner from each category.
