Inspiration for our competition themes 

The competition themes reflect on Bodmin’s Dark Past while looking forward to a Brighter Future. The ‘Beast of Bodmin’ is the theme for the two primary school age groups. The older age groups will have the choice of ‘Freedom and captivity’ and ‘The Bright Side’.  

We will be using the images of the 'Beasts' to make tea towels so we are asking children to just draw the Beast and not draw any background  so that their Beast stands out on the finished towel. 

The older age groups can use whatever media they like as long as it can be digitally uploaded, either as a photograph or a digital image. We will be using the images to make prints to sell to raise funds so it needs to be suitable for that purpose.

We have put together some information about the themes to inspire the entrants. You can download the pdfs here
