  • Description/Summary

    We had a great response to our first challenge in association with WWF (World Wide Fund For Nature), and we’re excited to launch part two, closing date of 22nd May 2019.

    Tigers once roamed the entire continent of Asia, but with human expansion they have lost a staggering 96% of their original range.  Poaching, habitat loss and habitat degradation are causing global tiger populations to plummet.  While the image of this magnificent cat is as familiar to us as everyday objects, today fewer than 4,000 tigers remain worldwide.

    We’d like to invite you to paint this animal for our second painting challenge.  We’ll reveal a selection of the entries in the July issue of Paint magazine to coincide with WWF’s Global Tiger Day on Monday 29th July.
