We have been asked by the team at BIC® to find MNers with budding artists who fancy having their artwork on display in their local town!

BIC® is hosting a competition here on Mumsnet where children aged 5-11 can submit their drawings and be in with a chance to win a £50 BIC® bundle and get their artwork featured on a billboard in their hometown!

“It doesn’t matter if your child thinks the sky should be yellow, the sun pink, or the grass purple – we want to see the nation’s most imaginative drawings. All you need to do, is send a photo of your kid’s best drawing by the 6th August. Entries will then be judged by our panel of expert creatives and winners will be notified before the billboards are launched in September,” says Rebecca Huda from BIC®.

So get your child to hand draw an original image of their choice and post a photograph on this thread, along with the age of your child and your region. Ensure you keep the artwork as if your child wins, you will need to send in the original.

You need to be a registered Mumsnetter to take part so if you are not and want to enter please register here.


- This competition is open to all UK children who will be aged between 5 and 11 years old on 6th August 2017.
- 10 winners will be chosen by BIC® judges (judges will take the entrant’s age, creativity, use of colour and drawing/colouring ability into consideration) and they will all win a £50 BIC® bundle AND a 48-sheet billboard of their winning artwork in their hometown (or nearest town with billboard spaces).
- One entry will also be chosen at random to win a £300 Tesco voucher.
- There can only be one entry per child but can be multiple entries per Mumsnetter if you have more than one child aged 5-11yrs.
- Competition is open from 17th July - 6th August so get creative!

As the winning artwork will be shown on your local billboard, you’re welcome to name change if desired for the purposes of entry.

Best of luck - we can’t wait to see your drawings!


By entering this competition you are agreeing to the T&Cs, please read full T&Cs here.

Shame it isn't for younger kids. My three year old would love this. She draws animals, flowers and cars!

After watching Captain Underpants for approximately 40mins Mya (5) runs into the kitchen then comes back with a picture of Professor Poopypants & Captain Underpants. Just wish I had that memory let alone creativeness
