Have your work shown in a museum exhibition and win tickets to Chester Zoo! This competition forms part of West Cheshire Museums’ Festival for the Future: a month-long celebration of sustainability and climate change across West Cheshire, beginning July 2022.

We’re looking for creative responses to the question…

What will the world look like in 25 years’ time?

…to feature in our exhibition about plastic pollution and its impact on the environment. Drawing, painting, writing, poetry, collage – your entry can take any form, but it must fit on one side of A4! The judges are looking for creative responses that engage with the ideas of plastic pollution and climate change. What does the future hold for us?



First prize: family tickets to Chester Zoo

Second and third prize: sustainable goodie bags

Plus a schools’ prize: for the school who submits the most entries (relative to school size), Chester Zoo are offering a free online workshop! Prizes and certificates will be given at an awards ceremony in Chester on 9th July.
