Design a Mall Hippo competition!

Design a Mall Hippo competition! This half term we're launching a very exciting competition for all the budding artists out there! Our beloved family of Mall hippos are in need of a makeover so we're giving one lucky winner the chance to design a new look for them!

For your chance to win simply download the PDF sheet below or pick up a printed copy from the Information Desk at The Mall and decorate the hippo with your design! This can then be returned any time until 30 June via email to or dropped back in person to the info desk.

The three best designs, chosen by a panel from The Mall management, will then be announced on social media, and there will be a final public vote via Facebook to determine the overall winner.

The winning design will then be brought to life on all three hippos and displayed proudly in their home in front of The Mall!
