Enter our #GlowMarwellHall art competition to win amazing prizes!

September 22, 2022

This article was written for our 2022 Glow Marwell event. For information about our 2023 Glow Marwell event, please see our Christmas page.

With our winter art competition, we’re challenging artists young and old to come up with a design that can be projected onto Marwell Hall for our first-ever Glow Marwell winter event.

Update: The competition is now closed and we’ve chosen our winners!

Whether you’d like to depict your favourite animal, a festive scene, or the tree of life we’d love to see your most imaginative design ideas.

If you come up with the winning design, your artwork will be on show to thousands of people during our must-see festive light event.

The artwork needs to fit inside a circle and be in black and white only. Download our template and check out some design ideas.

Post your entry to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with #GlowMarwellHall (making sure your post is set to public) by 9am on Friday 7 October 2022. We’ll announce the winning design of the art competition on Monday 10 October.

The lucky winner will receive:

  • Two adult and two child tickets to Glow Marwell, where you’ll be able to see your design projected onto our Grade 1 listed building.
  • Two adult and two child tickets to Marwell Zoo so you can visit our amazing animals during the day.
  • Plus, a fun-filled goody bag!

Plus, 2 runners up will receive a Marwell goody bag each!

Glow is the first event of its kind to be held at Marwell with more than 250,000 LED lights creating a magical trail around the front of the zoo. As well as spellbinding lights and immersive opportunities, we’ll have festive catering, marshmallow toasting around our cosy firepits, and lots of Instagram-worthy photo ops!

Keep your eyes peeled on our website and social channels for more Glow-related announcements over the coming weeks and get your tickets booked. Glow Marwell runs on selected dates from 18 November through to 30 December 2022.
