Essential coronavirus info
We can’t wait to welcome our new and returning students from 19 October 2020. Your safety is our first priority.

Sell your design products and artwork

products-at-not-just-a-shop

not just a shop sells design products and artwork created by UAL students and alumni.

New products and artwork are sourced through open calls. Students and alumni who meet the criteria in our handbook can submit their work for the chance to get it sold.

Before applying for our open calls, please make sure you:

If you are on a Tier 4 Visa, you cannot apply to sell your work because the UK government states that you cannot be self-employed on a Tier 4 Visa. More detailed information can be found on the UK Council for International Student Affairs' website.

Product open call

The next deadline to apply for the chance to get your products sold as part of not just a shop's Spring/Summer collection is 25 January 2021 (10am). Applications will open in September 2020.

To fill out this application, you will need to have the following to hand:

  • Your business profile (100 character max)
  • Your current stockists and any relevant social media accounts if you have any
  • Either a wholesale catalogue/price list or photographs, item descriptions, and prices for each product you are submitting

We estimate that it will take 22-40 minutes to complete your application, with an additional 5-10 minutes for each additional product range.

Apply now

Fine art open calls

As a result of the shop closure due to COVID-19, we will not be accepting new Fine Art submissions until later this autumn.

Live briefs and competitions

We also run live briefs and competitions for current students. These provide students who may not have market-ready products with chances to see their work sold.

Our latest competition invites current UAL students to submit designs that will be transformed into a luxury festive gift box that will be sold in not just a shop for 6 weeks over the festive period.

The winning design will receive £150 worth of gift vouchers, 10 gift boxes, and a one-to-one professional development session.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 26 October 2020 (10am).
