Budding young Banksys have been invited to design a “villain” for a graffiti wall at East Ham’s new trampoline park.
The winning character will feature at the former Granada Theatre site in Barking Road once it opens this spring and become an arch enemy of the infamous ‘Flip Out Ninja’, who appears at Flip Out’s existing nine trampoline parks.
Renowned London graffiti artists will judge the competition, open to children aged between 11 and 16, along with Flip Out managing director Jon Inwards.
He said: “The judges will be on the look out for creativity and imagination when choosing the winning characters and I am really looking forward to seeing the designs.
“There are some fab prizes up for grabs and so I would urge any budding young street artists out there to get their creative juices flowing and start drawing.”
In addition to seeing their character brought to life, the winner will receive a Flip Out goody bag, a trip to the park for their entire class and a £200 donation for their school towards new sports and PE equipment.
A separate junior competition open to children aged between four and 10 will see the winner have their character created into a life-sized image for the East Ham trampoline park’s launch.
They will also receive a goody bag and class visit with their teachers.
To take part in the competition, children need to design their villain on an A4 piece of paper and return it to:
Schools Competition, Flip Out London E6, 281 Barking Road, East Ham, London E6 1LB.
Alternatively email a photo of the design to firstname.lastname@example.org. All entries must include a name, age and contact details, and they must be received by 21 April.
