*Each Group’s entry should fill a wall space 180cm x 180cm with a table 180cm x 60cm in front. Be as creative as you can, using anything from paint, sculpture or sewing to recycled art to create your own mini-exhibition! (See examples below.)

Please send these via WeTranser/Dropbox/Google Drive to jo.elphick@davidshepherd.org (videos must be no more than 3 minutes long). The video/presentation will be shown at the Natural History Museum if you are selected as an overall or category winner.

*Shortlisted finalists will be chosen from the photographic submission and video/presentation. The successful groups will display their entry at the Natural History Museum on Thursday 7th March 2019.
