Owl Colouring Competition

In our Spring 2016 issue of Wildlife Watch we ran a colouring competition, to win this beautiful Georgie Woolridge colouring book.
We asked readers to colour in an A3-sized  owl, from the book.

We were absolutely blown away by the response - nearly 1,500 children entered! That's an incredible response and makes this the most popular competition in Wildlife Watch history.

As you can imagine, it was quite a task judging that, so we tried to judge a spread of ages and abilities. Below are the five children we chose as winners. Well done!

Also though, a big well done to all other entries. The amount of time and effort that went into these owls was phenomenal! It was so difficult to choose and you should all be very proud of yourselves. 

A big thank you to STABILO and Modern Books, who have offered all entrants a discount if they would like to buy the prizes themselves. If you entered the competition but haven't received an email with the details of this discount, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The winners

8 years old and under

Evie Hancock, aged 8

We loved the strong, bold colours used by Evie, and the background she created.


Katie Fisher, aged 7

Katie's entry made an impact due to the beautiful pastel colours she used. 

Good job Katie! 

9-12 years old 

Levi Warnes, aged 10

The attention to detail that Levi put into his owl is incredible! It's difficult to see on this picture, but every feather has a different level of detail on it. 


Jessica Sheridan, aged 12

We love the arrangement that Jessica made with her owl, the flowers really make it stand out! 

Not only that, she put great effort into shading the owl's feet and we love the natural colour scheme she used for the feathers.

13 years old and over 

Caroline Hodgkiss, aged 14

This entry is slightly different to all the others as Caroline coloured in pencil crayon, rather than felt-tip.

Each feather is also individually shaded, which must have taken so much time and patience. Well done Caroline!
