Founded in 2016, the Wild Postcard Project aims to increase awareness of biodiversity through artwork competitions for kids & teens in locations across the world. The winning artworks are converted into postcards, allowing local biodiversity – as depicted by artistically inclined youth – to be shared to all corners of the globe.
We are keen to use what might be considered ‘old-fashioned’ medium: postcards. We feel like there’s so much shared online nowadays that it can be overwhelming. So, we are delighted to offer an initiative that allows us to revert to the days of pen pals in providing a much-needed digital detox!
We’ve had a fantastic response to our first two competitions, held in Ireland (2016) and the Philippines (2017). Each of these received well over 1,000 entries, with judges having a very difficult time selecting the best artworks to be converted to postcards.
As of September 2017, we’ve some very exciting news that we’ll be sharing (hint: it means more competitions soon to be announced, at locations near and far!) So keep an eye out here and on our social media for updates.

A final congratulations to the winners of our competitions, and thank you to everyone who has taken part… we have been blown away not only be everyone’s artistic talents, but also in the care taken to depict the beauty, magnificence, and wonder of biodiversity.
