Did you know there are so many design challenges on Twitter you can join? You don’t need to sit around waiting for an official body to give you the heads up on a design competition. The best thing about these design challenges on Twitter is that there are no entry requirements. No entry fees, no membership to a secret society and no skill level required! So whether you are just starting out or consider yourself to be the next Picasso, here are the best design Challenges on Twitter you should join. Get out your pencils, paints or whatever you use to design and get designing!
Oh, and you don’t have to be a professional artist or designer to join any of these challenges – You just need to have the passion! If you are in the middle of learning how to draw, you might be interested in my mega list of easy things to draw.
Animal Alphabets is a weekly challenge, where you use the first letter of the alphabet to create a unique piece of artwork. Each week you will be given something beginning with a letter of the alphabet, such as “A is for Alice in the wonderland”. Using any medium of your choice you must draw, sketch or paint that theme.
Post: Every Monday at 19.30 GMT
Colour collective is another weekly challenge, where each week followers are given a random colour. You must create a piece of artwork based on that colour provided. For example the colour may be “Pompeian Red”, using that colour it times to create your master piece!

Sketchbook Sundays is a fortnightly challenge based various themes. The current one being Disney, which I love! The name suggests you can only post sketches of your artwork, but you can post any medium you prefer. I myself have submitted digital artwork to this challenge and was accepted.
Post: Sunday’s every two weeks at anytime
3 year old scribble is a really cool and innovative design challenge on Twitter and Facebook. It involves taking a scribble drawn by a 3 year old and turning it into a spectacular piece of artwork. Again you don’t need any artistic ability to participate, it’s all about your imagination!

Pinch punch post is a monthly design challenge on Twitter, where each month you are given a different creature to illustrate. Then on the 1st of each month you post your artwork using the hashtag #pinchpunchpost. Creatures in the past included lions, hippos, dogs and owls!
