Can your children create a brightly coloured pig to rival those that have popped up around Ipswich this summer?
We are calling on youngsters, inspired by the Pigs Gone Wild trail, to colour in their very own pig and send us their designs.
We will be choosing five winning designs and the artists will each be given a free copy of our exciting Pigs Gone Wild sticker album.
Natalie Sadler, digital editor, said: “The Pigs Gone Wild Trail has been a real hit with children and families, whenever we are out and about we see people queuing up to pose for a selfie.
“Some pupils in Ipswich were lucky enough to be involved in the junior pig project and helped create the smaller version of the sculptures that have gone on display in public buildings around Ipswich. However, we know there is a great wealth of artistic talent among our younger generation and we want to see what designs children will come up with.”
The pig templates, which can be downloaded using the link below, can be coloured in or budding artists can use a collage technique to decorate it.
The competition comes as our Pigs Gone Wild stickers go on sale. There are 85 to collect and stickers are available in packs of five from our offices, selected Coop stores and St Elizabeth Hospice shops. You can also claim a free packet with every paper purchased from tomorrow. Vouchers will be printed every day throughout the trail and beyond, giving you plenty of time to collect them all.
