Schools' Gromit Design Competition

Schools Competition Logo

Be part of our new and exciting sculpture exhibition by entering our Gromit Unleashed: The Grand Adventure design competition with your school. Based on the theme of a Grand Adventure, let your pupil's imaginations run wild as they come up with their own cracking Gromit design and have the chance to win some paw-some prizes! A great activity to do in your class at school, for home work or over the Christmas holidays.

Taking part is easy

Simply register your school and download our competition pack, containing our ‘design inspiration schools' worksheet and Gromit design template.

Pupil’s from reception to year 6 in primary schools and years 7 to 11 in secondary schools are invited to take part. Schools will be able to submit one entry per class for each year group into the competition by scanning a PDF of the design to [email protected] by Wednesday 30 June 2021.

Entries will be judged by our panel of Gromit Unleashed artists who will be looking for creative Gromit designs that are inspired by the theme ‘Grand Adventure’ with winners announced by Monday 12 July 2021 .

Paw-some prizes!

Winners will receive a certificate and a brilliant bundle of Gromit Unleashed goodies which includes a Paint Your Own Gromit figurine so they can bring their designs to life! There will be one winner for each year group across all schools.


Taking part in the design competition is a great way to raise awareness of the vital work that The Grand Appeal does within Bristol Children’s Hospital. You could also organise some fundraising activities alongside the competition too.
