Creative Competition

Get ready with your pens, paints, crayons and creativity as we'll soon be announcing the 2018 carnival creative competition to design the cover for this year's event programme!

Last year, Ava Jones (9) from Ghyll Royd School, was the overall winner following an impressive collection of entries from local schools and independent submissions.

Ava's drawing, which includes popcorn and popular characters from the movies, was used for the cover of last years' programme and for the first time in Ilkley Carnival history, adorned the front of 5,000 limited edition Tesco hessian bags for life following their main sponsorship of the 2017 Ilkley Carnival.

Ava said: "I really enjoy colouring and drawing so winning the competition is a real confidence booster!"

We will be launching the 2018 Creative Competition very soon so keep updated with all news on twitter and facebook.
