Want your work featured in the Made in Brum book?


We’re looking for your best artwork, photographs, and designs which show what Birmingham is made of.

Think representations of iconic landmarks – the amazing architecture of the Bullring to the calms of Birmingham’s canals – or the world-renowned brands that were created here like Typhoo, Bird’s Custard, and of course, Cadbury.

Simply submit your work on our website and you could have it published in the Made in Brum book which will be sold in locations all around Birmingham! Make your mark on the city and show the world what Birmingham is made of. Plus, you’ll get some copies of your own to keep or give away!
