Arts and Minecrafts: We're calling for gamers to design our homes
Worried about how much time your child (or spouse) spends gaming? Well worry no more ─ we’ve come up with the productive solution for gamers this summer, and it could just help them discover their dream career.
Whether it’s Minecraft, The Sims, Roblox or even Animal Crossing, we are calling for gamers across the country to digitally recreate one of our homes or developments in a bid to discover the talented designers of the future.
Each entry will be reviewed by an expert panel of judges, including expert gamer Clare Siobhan (known as More Clare Siobhan on YouTube) as well as Group Customer and Marketing Director, Matt Grayson, Group Master Planning Director, Kevin Parker, Group Design and Technical Director, Stuart Norton, and Head of Talent, Anna Milne, with a whole host of exciting prizes up for grabs.
Scroll down to see some entries we've received!
There are three categories to enter:
Primary SchoolOpen to schools and individuals, show off your digital skills by designing a Redrow home. Perhaps you could draw it on paint, or using an iPad. You could even build it on Roblox or Minecraft – but make sure you have parent permission first.
The judges will be looking for creativity, so have a think about how you can make your design stand out. What colours could you use? How can you make the house look 3D?
Prize: £50 in art vouchers for the individual winner and £200 in art vouchers for the winner’s school.
Secondary SchoolAre you a whizz on Minecraft, or an expert builder on The Sims? In this category, we’re looking for technical ability, and we want to see how realistic you can make your Redrow home look.
The judges will be looking for attention to detail, and a design that showcases Redrow’s distinctive style. Are you up for the challenge?
Take a look through our Heritage Collection here, pick a home, and get creating!
Prize: A gaming streaming bundle worth over £400, including a Razer Camera and Microphone, and keyboard, mouse and headset. There’s also the opportunity for work experience with the Redrow team if you want it too!
Don’t worry big kids, we know there’s no age limit when it comes to enjoying gaming. One for the hardcore gamers, we’re looking for a replica Redrow home, from an accurate floorplan to a modern, high-spec interior design. The more realistic, the better, and bonus points will be rewarded for those who are able to walk the judges through their creation and the choices made.
Prize: MSI Curved Gaming Monitor, worth £600.
