We had an amazing response to our recent Doodle Competition to celebrate National Stationery Week. The competition was to unleash your inner doodler to show how George managed to capture the dragon. We’ve been absolutely blown away by the amazing variety of doodles and ideas.
The competition was split into three age categories with the winner of each category winning a prize bundle valued at over £100. The overall winner also received a limited edition Cross Year of the Dragon pen worth £199.99!
Winner of the Under 12’s category
The Under 12’s was really hard fought. It had everything from one-eyed, glum-faced, spiky dragons to technicolour, egg-laying, happy dragons with every option inbetween. One entry even had a spiky dog/giraffe/dragon hybrid!
Katie’s dragon really stood out as the cutest of the dragon swarm. It’s easy to see how George would have managed to capture this doe-eyed beast with a tummy rub and a treat.
Winner of the 12-17 category

Winner of the 18+ category and overall winner
The 18+ category caused lots of problems with judging; everything was so good! The true doodlers stood out for the sheer amount of detail they put into their doodles. Some of the puns (verbal and pictoral) were delightful and some of the dragons looked good enough to be on the cover of a story book.
Jack’s inky battle scene was chosen because of the clever use of the pre-existing lines, brilliant style and the dragon’s devious smirk. The appropriate surname was just a bonus.
We’d like to extend our thanks to all of the entrants into this year’s competition. We hope it was as much fun for you as it was for us and we’re looking forward to next time.
