Competition: win a place on 1 of our 4 international 2-day Content Design courses
14 October 2019
By Claire Gordon
To launch CDL’s international course we are giving you the chance to win 1 of 4 prizes. Enter to win a place on our 2-day course in 1 of these locations:
- The Hague, The Netherlands (this course is taught in Dutch),
- Sydney, Australia,
- Manchester, England,
- San Francisco, USA.
Travel and accommodation are not included in the prize, sorry.
If you have booked a place on 1 of the above courses already you can still enter. If you win we will refund what you have already paid, so there’s nothing to stop you entering.
Our courses usually sell out with a waiting list. Sydney is filling fast. And we have a lot of interest in our other new course locations.
How to enter
Our competition question: how would you define or describe content design?
Share your response on Twitter using any content type you like. Remember content designers aren’t limited to words.
You need to:

- add the right hashtag,
- post your reply between Wednesday 16th October and 6pm on Wednesday 23rd October.
The competition closes at 6pm on 23 October.
Aim to make your content inclusive and accessible. For example:

- add captions to videos for screen readers,
- create clear content that all users can understand, whatever their subject knowledge, literacy level or access challenge.
