Scarecrow Competition

Have you got your entry in? Deadline extended to 12 noon on Weds Aug 23

Thank you to those who have entered the competition. Please place your scarecrows out by 9.a.m. on Saturday 26th and decorate your houses with bunting. If you have bunting but have not made a Scarecrow please decorate your home anyway.


To liberate everyone's creativity, we have an 'open' theme.  Your scarecrow can represent literally any person, phrase or thing.   If you don't want your scarecrow to be judged, please simply display it in your garden for everyone to enjoy. 

Three impartial judges will award 1st, 2nd & 3rd prizes. Their decisions will be final, and based on:

  • Creativity / inventiveness
  • Originality / novelty
  • Effort
  • Humour

A 'people's choice' prize will also be awarded, voting slips will be in the printed programmes
(voting deadline 2pm Monday Aug 28).  

Entries are welcome from Brinklow Residents & Guests.  We Love both Local & Visitor Scarecrows, with super Prizes on Offer!

Get your creativity caps on and help make this year's Festival even more spectacular than last year's.

Guest Scarecrows will take pride of place next to St John's Norman Church, for all to see.

Please download and print out the entry form below, and submit per the instructions with your £2 entry fee. All profits go to our great causes!
