Twitter has launched a nationwide design competition in the UK, #PoweredByTweets: The Challenge, asking the British public to come up with an idea that either solves a problem using Twitter or creates something beautiful using Twitter data.

To enter go to creative.twitter.com/uk

You'll need to send a brief description of what the idea is and why you think people will be drawn to it. Just provide a rough idea of how you think your idea would work from a technical aspect and how you think your idea could look, but don’t worry too much about detail at this stage.

You can upload a PDF to help bring the idea to life - send a mock-up image, or rough sketches of the idea, or a storyboard or mood board.

The Challenge will run for two months, after which a judging panel of industry leaders across arts, technology and media will pick first, second and third place winners in each category.

Representations of winning ideas will be built by the Shoreditch-based Pixie Labs digital incubator.

Each winner will receive a media budget to promote their idea on Twitter. Winners will also be featured during the London Design Festival in September.

The competition closes on Friday 5th June.
