How to participate in the Window Drawing Weeks 2020
Submissions open 23rd November 2020 – 18th December 2020
Participation is fun and at the same time very simple. Follow the steps below and post it on social media with the hashtag #WindowDrawingWeeks. Who knows, you might win a nice prize too! The steps are explained below.
Step 1 - Design your Window Sling
Working individually or as a group…
Start with a design, idea or concept in mind. Then you can either draw freehand directly onto your window or download and print out one (or a combination) of our special Window Sling templates and off you go!
Hints & Tips
When using a template, tape the template onto the window and trace your design onto the ‘other’ side of the glass.
Note: if you want any writing to be readable from the outside, print and stick the ‘mirrored’ image templates on the outside of your window and draw your sling from the inside of the window.
Step 2 - Choose the right chalk marker
Where can I get edding chalk markers?
All you need to draw a Window Sling is a nice clean window and our edding chalk markers. The edding chalk markers contain a water-based liquid chalk, which makes it easy to remove or edit simply and easily with a damp cloth. Don’t own any edding chalk markers? Not a problem, you can find local stockists of our edding chalk markers below:

Step 3 - Draw your Window Sling!
Let's get started
When you have your design and chalk marker at hand, you can start drawing. For inspiration or simply to be well prepared, you can view the tutorials by our Campaign Ambassadors – Sarah Bloor and Farrah Azam on our Instagram and Facebook pages, where you can see exactly how to draw a window sling, as well as a few additional handy hints and tips!
Step 4 - Take a picture
Photograph your artwork
When you’ve finished your Window Sling take a clear photograph ready for uploading.
It is best to take a photo in the evening (without flash), because then you will be less bothered by sunlight and reflections on the window!
Step 5 - Upload your Window Sling
