Big Local In Bloom Poster Competition

Flower Image


Alongside our garden competition GM2LF would like to introduce a competition for the young and enthusiastic artists of the big local area!

Children of all ages who live in or attend a school or club in the Grace Mary to Lion Farm area are invited to submit a colourful, eye-catching painting of flowers seen outside in summertime. The entry chosen as best overall, will be used to illustrate a special poster to publicise next year’s Big Local in Bloom Competition.

The posters will be judged in three age categories of entrants, (see below). There will be a winner and two runners-up in each age category, plus an overall winner. All these 9 top entries will go on exhibition at special events during the year.


Overall winner              All Ages

Category A                   Under 6 years
Category B                   7 – 11 years
Category C                  12 – 16 years

The awards for each of the Top 9 selected across all 3 age categories will receive a Big Local in Bloom certificate and a voucher for a local toy store. Award winners will be invited to a special ceremony. The Overall Winner will also receive a unique trophy to treasure for a lifetime.
