Barnsley in Bloom poster competition is back!

Barnsley Council’s annual Barnsley in Bloom poster competition starts today! This year, we are encouraging children to get creative both at school and while at home.

The poster competition will run slightly longer than the previous year - from Monday 19 April to Friday 21 May. Children up to the age of 16 are encouraged to draw their best Barnsley in Bloom picture on a sheet of A4 paper, take a picture of it and email it to with the subject: ‘Barnsley in Bloom entry’. Please make sure to include the child’s age and name in your email.

This year, similarly to last year, there is no specific theme – just get inspired by nature and the flowers blooming around your home this spring. Use colours and paints to brighten up your picture.

There will be three age categories: six and under, seven to 11 and 12-16. The Barnsley in Bloom Group will judge and choose one winner from each age category, while the Mayor choose an overall favourite. Each winner will receive a digital certificate over email. Their artwork will be shared on Barnsley Council’s social media channels so that everyone in the borough can enjoy their artwork and celebrate the winners.
