Holly, aged 4 dressed as a shark

WildMe 2017

Dress up as a wild animal or plant, send us a photo and you could win tickets to Matilda in our wild costume competition!

Time to dress up!

Want to be camouflaged like a moth? Pretend to be an eagle? Or know what it’s like to have eight legs like an octopus? Well now’s your chance.

To enter our WildMe competition, dress up as an animal, plant, fungus or anything else natural you like – or create a nature-inspired outfit. You could make a hat, dress, trousers, shirt or any other clothing, as long as it’s all about nature.

Then take a photo of yourself wearing your costume and email it to us, telling us what inspired you to make it – and you could win two tickets to Aladdin in London’s West End for you and an adult. Five runners-up will win the RSPB Guess Who? Game.

How to enter

Email comps@rspb.org.uk with a picture of you in your nature costume and the story of what inspired you. Include your name, age and address.

Closing date: 9th February 2018
