Sharpen your pencils and ready your paints, the Lost Fishes Art Challenge is here!

In partnership with Conservation Optimism, Shoal are launching an art challenge for each of the 10 Most Wanted species from the Search for the Lost Fishes.

Each of the Top 10 species are currently monochrome. Having been hidden from human eyes for many years, they have lost their sparkle, their colours have faded to black, white and grey, their appearance has become unclear as a turbid river. As we lost these species, they too have lost their colours.

We need you, talented artist, to bring the rainbow back to these fishes, to magic them back to dazzling life and give them the chance to be seen in all their scaly splendour for everyone to admire.

There are exciting prizes up for grabs, including the chance to have your work exhibited at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

Deadline 30th September, 2021.
