Creative Competition for International Bat Night

The 20th International Bat Night (27-28th August) is fast approaching, and we would like to challenge you all to take part in a very special creative competition to celebrate! 

To enter the competition all you have to do is create something original and inspiring that represents how you celebrated International Bat Night. Your entry could be a drawing or painting of a bat you saw whilst on a bat walk, a picture of bat shaped cookies you baked, or a poem or short story inspired by your activities.

The competition is open to all, and to accommodate all ages we will be splitting entries into two categories, (16 and under and over 16) and choosing one winner from each category - so make sure you include your name and age when you send us your entry. The lucky winners will receive one year's FREE membership to the Young Batworker's Club (under 16s category) and either a year's FREE individual or family membership (over 16s category). 

We would like to see as much variety as possible, so get creative with your entries and most importantly HAVE FUN! Ideally we would like all entries to be in by Friday 2nd September, so we can then put our shortlist up on our website for you to decide upon the winner.

Send your entries by email to (if it’s a piece of artwork, you could scan it or send us a clear picture instead) or by post to: 
Bat Conservation Trust
Quadrant House
250 Kennington Lane
SE11 5RD
