Birmingham 2022 is looking for children across the country to design their own Commonwealth Games mascot and be in with a chance of winning family tickets to the Opening Ceremony on 28 July 2022.

The Birmingham 2022 mascot will be a global icon for the Games. It should represent the identity, heritage and culture of the Commonwealth Games, Birmingham and the West Midlands, and embody the city and region: youthful, diverse, dynamic and creative, always looking to innovate and move forward.

The winning design will inspire the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games’ official mascot.

The Birmingham 2022 mascot competition is open to children aged five to 15. You can print off an entry form here or use a blank sheet of A4 paper.

The design could be a painting, drawing or collage. The mascot could be a character, animal or person. It’s up to you. All you need is your imagination!

When your mascot design is ready, take a photo of it, or scan it in, and submit it here.
