Last year's winner in the 8-12's category by Ella Allison.
If you like drawing and painting, this is the competition for you!
Why not enter this year's WildArt? It'll be great fun and there are fantastic prizes to be won.
Make a bright and colourful picture of any wildlife you like (but not creatures in zoos or cages, or pets). Try drawing from real life if you can.
Please put your name, age and address on the back of your picture. If you want your picture returned, please send us the correct postage and packing and write 'please return' on the back. Unfortunately we can only send back pictures with the correct postage and packing included.
We can accept a maximum of three WildArt entries from each participant.
Send your entry (or entries) to:
RSPB Wildlife Explorers
by Friday 28 August 2015.
We will tell the winners during September.
The competition, run jointly with the Society of Wildlife Artists, is split into three age groups: under 8s, 8–12 years of age, 13 years and over.
The winning entrant in each age group will win an art gift voucher worth £100 and their picture displayed in a top wildlife art exhibition in London.
Six runners-up will each win a £25 art voucher. A special Richie Richardson award for the most accurately drawn animal will win a book voucher worth £100. Pictures will also be printed in Wild Times, Bird Life or Wingbeat magazine.
