Christmas decorations at the BA i360

Would you like to decorate Brighton’s BA i360 for Christmas?

Here’s a fantastic opportunity to make your mark on Brighton’s iconic skyline. If you have a passion for design and Christmas (decorations), have a go at this exciting competition.

The team behind the British Airways i360 is looking for creative students in Brighton (aged 16+) to design and install a stunning festive decorative scheme on board the attraction’s glass viewing pod.

This is your chance to turn the pod into a magnificent Christmas bauble throughout December and into the New Year.

Attend the Briefing Session on board the Pod – 18 September at 8:30am

The BA i360 team is inviting all interested students to a 45 minute Q&A session on Wednesday 18 September at 08:30 to ask any questions and take measurements.

Please email by Monday 16 September to reserve your place stating your name, age, the name of the education facility you attend and your course. Please bring your student ID as proof of identity and study.

The Design Brief

The design scheme should be reflective of British Airways i360 – innovative, imaginative and intelligent.

The design should fit with the i360’s architecture and take account of our beautiful location on Brighton beach.

The design and decoration should have sustainability at its core.

The scheme should in no way interfere with visitors’ enjoyment of the views across the city and south coast. It should instead enhance the whole festive experience on board the BAi360 viewing pod.

The projected total cost of all decorations should not exceed £1,000. The winning designer will need to source all the products included in their design and then install the decorative design on the pod.

The Prize

The winner will be present at the launch event on board the pod, receive a professional photo shoot and two annual passes for the British Airways i360. The winner will also win a table for 4 at a Christmas party at the i360 including a flight, three-course meal, half a bottle of wine per person and DJ entertainment, worth £220 (date restrictions apply).


All submissions should be emailed to by 5pm on Friday 25th October. Submissions must include a description and statement about your design, together with drawings of your design, photos of sample decorations, materials and lighting, budget and timing plans.
