    We are delighted to announce that The Upcycle Challenge is back for 2017. We want to get Ireland thinking creatively about reuse.

     The Upcycle Challenge 2016 was such a success we have decided to hold the competition again for a second year. There was great interest in the Upcycle Challenge in 2016 and we were totally wowed by the entries we received. So this year we want to do it all again. This year we will have a special category dedicated to Men’s Sheds where we have €1,000 up for grabs for the winner!

    We are so looking forward to seeing what creative ideas 2017’s challenge will bring and we hope you will join us and take part!

     The competition is open from Thursday 3rd August 2017 and closes at 5pm on Monday 16th October 2017. Further details on this year’s competition are available on www.freetradeireland.ie. If you have any queries about this year’s competition please don’t hesitate to contact us!

    Best regards,

    The FreeTrade Ireland Team
