Environment Art and Photography Competition:

Focus on the environment

Is there a budding artist or photographer in your home? Enter for your chance to win a £50 love2shop voucher.

Who can enter?

There are three age groups (0-6, 7-11 and 12-16 years old) so households can submit more than one entry increasing the chances of winning.


What do I need to do?

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is use your imagination to create a piece of hand-crafted art or to take a photograph that reflects the theme, ‘The Environment and the Home’. For example, a chimney with a bad cough, or a home which uses energy from purely natural sources. The only limit is your imagination.

Love2Shop vouchers can be spent in thousands of shops, restaurants and attractions across the UK - so everyone will find something they love.

Blue Cross Britian's Most Heroic Tails! Competition


We’re calling for all Key Stage 2 animal lovers and aspiring artists in your school to enter a new creative competition - to design a movie poster all about their favourite ‘su-purr’ hero to support this year’s Blue Cross Medal award! 

2020 marks the 80th Anniversary of the Blue Cross Medal first being awarded to incredible pets. The Blue Cross Medal celebrates everyday pets who are changing or saving lives across the UK – with one extra special pet being awarded the winning medal each year. Last year, a dog called Lily-Rose won the medal for saving her two family members’ lives. A true hero!


Get your pencils ready!

To celebrate this major milestone, we are asking pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 to draw their favourite pet on the front of an A4 sized superhero-themed movie poster – alongside 150-200 words why their pet is such a champion.

No pet? No problem! Pupils who don’t own a pet can draw their imaginary ‘super pet’ and explain what their powers would be.

Five winning movie posters will be selected by Blue Cross in May, recreated by professional designers and showcased at a special exhibition in London in June called ‘Pet Heroes Through the Ages’ – which they will be invited to attend.  


The closing date for entries is 3pm on Friday 15 May.  All entries must be sent to or sent in the post to ‘Blue Cross Competition, The PHA Group, 115-117 Wardour Street, London, W1F 0UN’  by this date.


We will let you know if you are one of five lucky winners after 1 June 2020.

The winning entries will be reproduced by professional designers and will go on display at a special exhibition in London in June 2020 to celebrate the 80th anniversary of awarding the Blue Cross Medal to incredible pets. Winners will be invited to attend the exhibition to see their work on display.
