IT IS TIME! HOW EXCITING! Finally we get to reveal the winners from our annual cushion competition - the Pillow Fight! The brief was to create a winning cushion design that would stand out from the crowd. Missed out? Read the brief here so you can get prepared for 2019!

Excitingly, there was more than one way to win:

Winners by Ranking
Each vote = 1 point and each sale = 50 points and when combined this gives you your total ranking. For this part of the competition, the artist ranked first place will get £300, second place £150 and third £50.

Contributor Selection by Ohh Deer
For the part of the competition where we select our next contributor, we at Ohh Deer HQ review every submission, and choose the work we think is the best fit for our creative family!

So, even if your ranking was low, you were still in with a chance to become our next contributor. Equally, those who ranked highly did not necessarily also win the chance to become a contributor.


1st Place - Christina Murphy’s Saved By The Pencils Cushion (1197 Points)

2nd Place - Rosie Dore’s Hawthorne and Hedgehog Cushion (986 Points)

3rd Place - Dina Arkhipova’s Adulthood Cushion (670 Points)

Congratulations! You guys will be contacted shortly and we wish you the very best with your creative endeavors in the future :)


Congratulations guys! Your cushion is going to be sold at Ohh Deer!
