How you can showcase your creativity ahead of Aylesbury's WhizzFizzFest

Over the next three weeks Aylesbury's WhizzFizzFest is running an illustration competition in the run-up to the main event.

Entrants are tasked with creating their own super character and are encouraged to be as innovative as they can whether it be a sketch, a painting, a sculpture or even showing off computer skills when designing their character.

They are also tasked with deciding which superpowers to bestow on their characters to wow the judges.

The competition is free to enter and there is no restriction on the number of entries that can be made.

There are only two entry categories, the 0 to 10 years category and the 11 to 16 years category - with one winner from each winning a fantastic arts and crafts set.
