Cows about Cambridge: Win your own mini moo to decorate by sending us your design

Mini moos are out and about in the city, as part of the brilliant Cows about Cambridge art trail.

And the Cambridge Independent, as media partner for the trail, has a blank mini moo to give away as a unique prize.

Our winner will be able to decorate it and paint it as they wish.

The competition is open to individuals and families, schools and community groups.

To enter, we want to see your creative ideas for the design of a mini moo.

Simply send us a photograph or scan of your design, along with a few words about it.

Remember to include:

  • Your name, address and, if under 18, your age (parents / guardians can submit on a child’s behalf)
  • Your organisation/group/school if entering on behalf of one
  • The name you’d give your mini moo

The template

You can download a pdf of the template here to print, or print the picture below. Or you can just use your own drawing. Then send us a photograph or scan of your design.

Where to send your entries

Entries should be submitted by letters@iliffemedia.co.uk putting ‘Mini moo competition’ in the subject line.

They should be received by Friday August 6, 2021.

Editor Paul Brackley said: “We’re looking forward to seeing creative ideas for this mini moo. There will be plenty of inspiration out there on the trail, so we’re sure we’ll see some brilliant concepts.”

Want some inspiration?

Here are some of the mini moo designs. You can find the location of all of them, and the large cow sculptures, via our interactive map.

Save the date

There are 90 sculptures on the trail - 46 mini moos and 44 large cow sculptures, and they will be in place until Saturday, September 4, 2021.

What if you miss a sculpture during the trail? There will be one last chance to see all the cows grazing in one location, on the farewell weekend, when you can say moo bye.

It will take place at The Grafton on September 18-19 and will be your chance to take those last snaps of the herd! Booking details for this event can be found on the Cows about Cambridge website - cowsaboutcambridge.co.uk.

Then the cows will be auctioned off on September 23 to raise money for Break.

Thank moos...
