Community Competition: Our Picture Dreams

It’s time for our next community competition to get creative, win prizes and be part of a special museum display.

We invite you to create a picture of what you are dreaming about seeing/doing when lockdown is over! Visiting your favourite place? Meeting up with relatives? Let’s celebrate our community, friends and family with some colourful pictures.

Paint it, draw it, colour it, sketch it and send it to: create new email

Don’t forget to include your age – there will be a winner selected from both the adult and child (under 16) entries. The winners in each category will receive £20 of Amazon vouchers and feature in a special post-lockdown museum display.

The deadline is midnight on Friday 15th May and the winners will be announced on Monday 18th May.

Thanks to the Valence Volunteers for their generous sponsorship making this competition possible.

And the winners are…

Congratulations to our winner in the under 10s category  Charlie Stevens (age 9) who made us smile with his dream of seeing his Nana and Grandad picture:

Congratulations to our winner in the over 10s category Jessica Dai (age 13) who inspired us with her tree of dreams picture:

Congratulations to our winner in the adult category Pavlina who brightened up our day with her colourful park picture:

Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry, we had a fantastic response from the community and it was lovely to see so many creative, colourful and thoughtful pictures.

Charlie, Jessica and Pavlina have each won £20 of Amazon vouchers and these pictures along with our other great entries will be used to create a special museum display once we re-open.
