We received over 700 CAN-tastic designs and were blown away by the creativity and talent on display. Thank you to everyone who took part!
It was a really difficult job for our judges, but after much deliberation, our overall winner and 3 runners up have been announced.
Have a look at our top 10 designs below to see who came out on top!
10. Pop – Kaif, age 9
At age 9, Kaif is one of our youngest finalists. We were really impressed by this hand-drawn design and loved the emphasis on recycling and looking after the planet!
9. Captain Tom – Elfin, age 15
This is a really impressive tribute to the inspirational Captain Tom Moore, set off by an eye-catching rainbow background. Great work Elfin!
8. Fairy Soda – Seren, age 16
We loved the call to action here – there’s no recycling fairy so it’s down to you to do the right thing with your empty can! And plenty of can recycling facts have been included in the design too. Nice one Seren!
7. Phoenix Elixir – Samuel, age 8
Cans really are like a phoenix from the flames when you recycle them! Samuel is our youngest finalist and we loved his impressive design and the concept behind it. Mythically hot ginger sounds like it will really pack a punch too!
6.Purple Paradise – Neve, age 15
This one would definitely stand out on the shop shelf! Well done Neve for creating this eye-catching design. We really liked the way you brought the recycle swoosh to life too, great idea!
5. The Infinity Can – Phoenix, age 22
We love talking about the fact that metal recycles forever, and this design really brings that concept to life. Inside every can is the potential for countless more cans! We loved the idea Phoenix, and it’s a great piece of artwork too – well done!
4. RUNNER UP: Ocean Breeze – Jamila, age 18
This is a really beautiful design, and we love how the recycle swoosh is incorporated into the underwater scene. Impressive artwork Jamila!
3. RUNNER UP: Your Choice – Shira, age 14
We could base an Every Can Counts poster around this design, it’s fantastic! A really clever concept that encourages us to do the right thing with our empty cans. Nice work Shira!
2. RUNNER UP: The Lockdown Liquid – Aaran, age 14
A really eye-catching design with a topical name and positive ‘We CAN do it’ messaging. Our judges loved it – great design Aaran!
1. WINNER: Re-Juice – Esme, age 13
Re-Juice, Re-Use, Re-Cycle! Great wordplay, an attractive design and locally sourced ingredients – this one has it all! Congratulations Esme, you’re our winner!
