Win some amazing HP laptops, printers and a year of Instant Ink!

More Prizes

22nd July 2021

SUMMER has arrived and athletes from all around the world are getting ready for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo – even though it’s 2021, but hey, it’s been a confusing year! To get into the Olympic spirit, HP are giving away some fantastic laptops and printers with Instant Ink, plus some cool runners-up prizes, in their design-your-own Olympics Printables competition!

You could design a colourful scorecard to keep track of the medals in your own Back Garden Olympics (or Living Room Olympics if the sun gods don’t smile on us this summer). Or how about drawing an illustrated map for your own mini-marathon around your local area? Maybe you’d prefer a timed scavenger hunt that will have you and your friends racing around like crazy! If you need some inspiration, you can find loads at! We can’t wait to see your sporty suggestions!


Here are some more suggestions to get your brain into gear!

How about creating a Printable that allows you to track your progress for a daily challenge, such as seeing how many keepy-uppies you can do in a row?

Maybe your Printable could be themed around table tennis? This fast and furious Olympic sport is great exercise, and you can buy a net (or even make your own) to put on a dining table for an instant Olympic arena!


The competition will be judged by First News editor in chief Nicky Cox MBE and HP Printables. They will be looking for the following in the winning Printables:

  • Is it colourful and fun?
  • Does it get you outside and/or active?

The closing date is 7 August 2021. The winners will be announced on 27 August 2021 and will be featured in First News! HP will also put their favourite 20 Printables on the Printables site for everyone to print and enjoy this summer!

What’s up for grabs?

There will be one winner and one runner-up for each age category: 5-7, 8-10, 11-14.

As well as basking in glory, the gold medal winner in each category will bag a new HP laptop and HP+ printer with a year of Instant Ink, as well as a free subscription to the First News iHub!

Each runner-up will get their hands on an HP+ printer with a year of Instant Ink and a free subscription to the First News iHub!
