Introducing our narwhal art contest

Kids love our marine mammal namesake. Now it’s time to send us those drawings of the unicorn of the sea

Every few months, without fail, a Narwhal reader sends in a drawing their kid made of the famed unicorn of the sea. And so, at a time when many camps are closed and families are spending more time than ever together, we figured: why not come up with a fun activity for the dog days of summer?

Here’s the deal: we want to see your kid’s narwhal artwork, no matter the skill level, whether they’re four or 14. Once they sketch their creation, snap a picture and send it our way by Aug. 23 to editor@thenarwhal.ca, with the subject line: Narwhal art contest. Make sure to include your child’s name, hometown and, if there’s a tale, the inspiration behind the art (Does their narwhal have a name? What makes narwhals special?).

We’ll review all the submissions, and pick three winners who will receive a sweet prize pack of Narwhal swag.

We’ll also be sure to share many of the wonderful works in our newsletter, on our website and social media. Looking for inspiration? Check out the piece above by four-year-old creative whiz Teddy Fribourg.

Break out those crayons or paintbrushes and get started!
