We look forward to welcoming the shortlisted finalists to the Natural History Museum in March.

This annual children’s competition is part of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s Art for Survival programme and was established in 2004 to encourage young people to express their concern for the environment through art and poetry.

Each year we look for imaginative group entries from children aged 16 years and under using art, poetry, sculpture and words to create a mini-exhibition to reflect the year’s theme; in 2017 this was Our Precious Planet.

We also encourage a video or PowerPoint presentation that provides a great story board to show case the ideas and creation of entries that can be shown at the Natural History Museum if you are selected as a winner!

As well as the usual prizes we’ll be giving £1 ,000 to the overall winner to donate to the DSWF project of their choice! Which will you choose?
