Patterns. They surround us. We come across them every day. We have them on our clothes, we have them in our homes, we see them in nature, we walk across them, we walk past them, we probably even consume them at meal times. And yet we very rarely take that much notice of them. However, there is often a hidden beauty in the smallest details that make up our world. Noticing these details can help us to get a better understanding of the world around us as well as provide us with unlimited inspiration.With the theme of this competition we are asking you to develop a new way of seeing. Open your eyes to the hidden geometry that surrounds us and truly appreciate the way that pattern can help us to tell a story. Instead of viewing pattern as a mundane and inconsequential detail, we want you to show us just how pattern can be used to gain a better understanding of life.
