Calling all Artists under 12!
We love how kids see the world, they have a unique perspective and for the last couple of years we have taken much joy and delight in running our Krispies Kids Colouring Competition. Each year we have asked Kids to draw a fish totally from their imagination – it can have legs and be brightly coloured, it can be based on a real fish or totally fictional. To say we have been overwhelmed and delighted with the fabulous fish is an understatement.
Our original plan (as well as receiving other prizes) was to feature the winner on our printed menu and as such Mickey Mackerel, drawn by Dillion Price, become our poster boy for our 2017 menus. It was a great opportunity to show off the talent of some of our youngest Fish & Chip lovers and we hope it helped inspire some other kids to eat more fish too. However, we soon realized the Mickey’s personality was too good just to feature on our menu so we decided that, for year two, the prize would not only include being featured on our printed menu but also we would give the winning fish a Krispies Collectors Card all of their own!
We have been giving away a Krispies Collectors Card, featuring one of Mr Krispies Fishy Friends, with all kids meals boxes for a couple of years now. They have proved extremely popular and now we have 16 to cards to collect in total. Each card shows a picture of a Fishy Friend plus a little bit about their personality (which is based on fact). So, our winner last year, Lacie Lace Fish, drawn by Lacie Skinner, joined Mickey Mackerel and 14 other fishy friends in having a Krispies Collectors Card all of her own.
Now we are delighted to tell you that if your kids or grandkids are budding artists, they will soon have their chance to get involved in our new 2019 competition that will launch in mid July 2019. And this year we will have seven amazing prizes to giveaway:
The winner will have their fish featured on both our printed and electronic menus plus have a Krispies Collectors Card all of their own! This will be handed out to hundreds of kids over the course of the year. They will also receive a special Krispies Goodie Bag
The Second Prize winner will see their fish featured on a Krispies Collectors Card too and also receive a special Krispies Goodie Bag
5 x Runners Up will get a special Krispies Goodie Bag.
In addition to this pictures of all the winning fish will be featured on our website!
We will publish full details of the competition and how to enter on our website shortly. We know the sun is shining now but we all know that at some point over the school holidays it will rain and you will hear that familiar refrain ‘I’m bored’ so make sure you are ready for those days with paper and anything the kids want to use – paints, pencils, collage, even digital – you name it, we will accept it all, we just want to see their lovely fish!
Keep your eyes on our website and facebook pages on how to enter! Details coming soon. Meanwhile scroll down to see some of the amazing pictures that have been entered in the last couple of competitions.
