Don’t forget your product has to fit into a snack sized Pringles tin. If you don’t have a tin you could use this template to create a model of one (you may need to change your printer settings to print it out the correct size).

Where do I send my finished product entry to?

Send your finished entry along with your completed application form to:

Julie Boyd, 60 Sudworth Road, Wallasey, CH45 5BX 
(please address the parcel to Julie Boyd rather than Boyd Education)

Note our address has changed - make sure you send your entries to our Wallasey address and not to the old Nottingham one.

Notes on posting your entry:

  • Don’t forget to make sure your name & contact details are attached securely to your entry (e.g. stitched, written on or pinned on with a safety pin. Don’t use paper clips or ordinary pins)
  • Send your entry with the application form. Don’t forget there are 2 pages to the form. 
  • You don’t have to send the tin as part of your entry. Simply post your entry in a padded envelope.
  • Make sure the package is well wrapped. Use a strong envelope, or a padded one, & put lots of tape around it to protect it. 
  • Entrants are responsible for delivering their work & receipt of entries can’t be acknowledged. If proof of receipt is required it is advised entries are sent by Royal Mail ‘Signed For’ or ‘Special Delivery Guaranteed’ 
  • Make sure any entries that are posted are well packaged. An ordinary envelope is usually not sufficient and many of these type of entries arrive ripped with the products damaged. Padded envelopes work best. Wrapping packages with lots of tape also helps make them stronger.
