The Competition Details

Look at the instructions below on how to draw a grasshopper (this image is from another Kingfisher book). Once you've got the idea of how to use simple shapes to put together a drawing of an insect, make your own drawing of any insect (it doesn't have to be a grasshopper). To enter the competition simply send your drawing (which can be just a line drawing, or it can be coloured in) together with your name, address and age to the following address:

Kingfisher Bug Drawing Competition
PO Box 8774,

All entries will be considered for inclusion in the Bug Club Magazine (published by the Amateur Entomologists' Society) and the three best entries as decided by the Judging Panel will be sent the two books mentioned above as a prize. Entries must reach us before 31st October 2009.

This competition is open all children under 15. If you are already a Bug Club Member, you will find out about another exciting drawing competition (for Bug Clubbers only) in the October edition of your Bug Club Magazine.
