Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice, including help if you are struggling financially

I live in Dorset competition

Tell us what you think and win £50 of art materials. There are 3 prizes to be won.

Dorset would be the best place in the world to grow up in if...

Imagine your Dorset in the future:

  • what do you imagine should be there to make your life better?
  • what small things would help? Or even big ambitious things?

We want to hear about real life things such as people and places, not completely imaginative things (sorry, no space aliens or time travelling portals!).

What you need to do

Choose your own creative way, tell us your age and submit:

  • a short video
  • a drawing or piece of art
  • an audio recording, like a song, rap, spoken word
  • a 3D model that you can take a clear photo of
  • a piece of writing
  • some dance or movement
  • a mixture of art forms


We will pick 3 winners at random from all entries.

Closing date

We will accept entries up until midnight on Friday 31 July 2020.

We'll award prizes to 3 randomly selected winners drawn from all participants.

We plan to display your amazing work online, at events and in public spaces all over Dorset!

Your responses will help change the future.
