Design a Squeeble Dragon Competition - A Big Draw Festival Event

We're delighted to announce our latest competition, which we will be running as part of The Big Draw 2018, an international celebration of creativity!

How does it work...?

We want you to design a pet dragon for the Squeebles! We'll include the designs from our winner and two runners-up in our next educational Squeebles app, due for release at the start of 2019.

The winner will also receive a £50 book token, with both runners-up receiving a £25 book token. All three will also receive a free copy of the app that features their dragon.

Here are some examples of dragons we've designed...

How to enter...

To enter, you need to ask your parent, guardian or teacher to e-mail your dragon design (scan or photo) as a .jpeg, .png or .pdf attachment to, including the following information in the body of the e-mail:

  • Your dragon's name (it can be anything - but try and keep it under about 20 characters maximum)
  • Your dragon's hobbies, favourite food (all Squeebles dragons are vegetarian, by the way) and any interesting facts about him or her. Be as creative as possible here - we want interesting, characterful dragons!
  • Your first name and age (we don't need your surname)
  • The full name and contact details of your parent / guardian / teacher (whoever is entering for you)
  • Your parent, guardian or teacher must agree to the terms and conditions as listed below. These will remain on our website indefinitely. To do this, just ask them to add the following sentence you your entry "I, [NAME], agree to the KeyStageFun "Design a Dragon" competition terms and conditions as included on the KeyStageFun website ( on [DATE]." where they replace NAME and DATE with their full name and the date of entry. Entries directly sent by children without parental consent or without the above sentence included will not be considered.

The competition will close at midnight on October 31st 2018.

Who can enter...

Anyone can enter, as long as they are 12 years old or younger and as long as they have had a parent, guardian or teacher agree to our terms and conditions by including the sentence above in their entry.

Colouring template...

We've provided a very simple dragon template to print off for anyone who wants a bit more inspiration to get started. You can download it by clicking / tapping the image below...

What are the prizes...?
  • 1st Prize - £50 book token, a digitally created character based on your design included in our next Squeebles app and a free copy of the app when it is released
  • 2nd Prize - £25 book token, a digitally created character based on your design included in our next Squeebles app and a free copy of the app when it is released
  • 3rd Prize - the same as the 2nd prize.

We will also offer some "Big Draw" goodies to the winning entry.

The book token cannot be swapped for any other monetary prize. Winners (first name and age only) will be announced on our website and social media channels within 7 days of the closing date of the competition, with both the winning designs and our digitally created version of their characters displayed too.

What is the link with The Big Draw?

Our "Design a Dragon" competition is registered as a Big Draw official event and we'll be offering some Big Draw goodies to the winner, in addition to the rest of the prizes.

Terms & conditions of entry...

[Parents / teachers / guardians... please read the below terms and conditions and then copy and paste the following agreement sentence into the e-mail including your entry "I, [NAME], agree to the KeyStageFun "Design a Dragon" competition terms and conditions as included on the KeyStageFun website ( on [DATE]."]


"The Entry" - this refers to the drawing, character description and any other information submitted as part of your competition entry.
"The Entrant" - this refers to yourself and your child - the people entering the competition.

1. Rights Ownership

I understand and agree that the copyright / rights to the digitally created version of the enclosed entry (The Entry), any artwork inspired by The Entry and any character description or personality information linked to The Entry will be owned by KeyStageFun (Tiny Spark Ideas Ltd.) for potential use in the Squeebles series of educational apps and in any promotional materials for KeyStageFun and their products.

2. Usage

I understand and agree that KeyStageFun may use The Entry, including any drawings, artwork, ideas or character information on their website, on any social media channels, on product packaging or advertising materials both in the original form and as part of any adapted artwork or imagery. Entries may also be displayed on the Big Draw website, social media channels and other online or offline advertising mediums (again, first name and age only). The Big Draw terms and conditions are included here:

3. Credits

The Entrant will be credited if they are selected as a winner or runner-up within the app that features their design and on the KeyStageFun website for at least one month after the announcement of the winning entries, but not in any further places where The Entry is featured. Only their first name and age will be used in any credit.

4. Financial Compensation

I understand that neither The Entrant, nor their school/family, will receive any financial gain from the sale of any product featuring The Entry.

5. Privacy

KeyStageFun take privacy seriously and will ONLY display first names and ages of entrants on our website or anywhere else publicly accessible. No surnames or other information that could be used to individually identify any child will be included anywhere on our website or other online channels. Unless the Entrant's parent, guardian or teacher expressly states otherwise, their details will not be automatically added to our mailing list. The Big Draw will only be passed the first name and age of any entry they wish to feature.

6. Prizes

The prizes shall be offered as described and cannot be swapped for any other prizes. If the winner is from outside the UK, the value of book tokens will be calculated as the equivalent of £50/£25 GBP, based on the exchange rates at the time we announce the winners, and will be paid in the form of Amazon vouchers.

7. Future

I understand that any similarities between any future characters created by KeyStageFun and non-winning entries are purely coincidental and in no way based on The Entry.

8. Closing Date

The closing date for the competition is midnight on October 31st 2018. Any entries received after this date will not be accepted for judging.

9. The Big Draw

The Big Draw terms and conditions can be found on their website - We will not pass entrants' contact details to The Big Draw, with only the first name and age of The Entrant being displayed by either us or The Big Draw if they choose to feature The Entry.

10. Have fun!

That's it for all the boring official stuff. Have fun!!!
