This competition is now closed. Thanks for entering – we’ve contacted the winners directly.

We’re giving you the chance to win a special “mini me” model of you or your family when we trial cutting-edge 3D printing technology at Asda Trafford Park in Manchester from Monday 16th June to Friday 20th June.

Alice with her 3D model

The revolutionary scanner – which you can read more about here – is much faster, slicker and state-of-the art than the equipment we’ve been using since we became the first UK supermarket to introduce 3D printing last year.

3D models next to an apple for scale

The existing service has been hugely popular. Emma Lloyd-Jones was inspired to get ceramic figures made of her 22-year-old daughter Alice and 84-year-old mother June. You can see Alice and June’s 8" models in the photo on the right, with an apple for scale!

If you’d like the chance to win models of you or your family simply fill in the form below and tell us who you’d like to immortalise in ceramic and why. We’ll choose our favourite answer.

Important note: To qualify for the prize you – or whoever you have nominated – must be able to get to Asda Trafford Park on Friday 20th June for a scanning session. Competition closes Tuesday 17th June – see full terms and conditions.

Asda customer Gem loves our “pin-up” duvet cover so much she decided to wear it!

Gem in the dress she made

Gem, 32, sent us this photo of her proudly wearing the finished dress, styled with a belt from her mum and wedges from George.

The talented dressmaker told us: “I am a huge fan of pinups so originally bought this to actually be bed linen. I washed it through (like I do everything new) and then decided actually I wanted to wear it not sleep under it.”

Asda cuts diesel prices

We’re cutting the price of diesel by up to 2 pence per litre – taking it to the lowest level since February 2011 – due to the fall in wholesale costs on diesel. The price on unleaded petrol remains the same, with a national cap of 127.7p.

From tomorrow (Saturday, 6th June) drivers filling up at any of our 234 forecourts nationwide will benefit from our new national price cap on diesel, meaning motorists will pay no more than 131.7 pence per litre for diesel.
