Hey, W&G fans! We hope you had a fun-filled summer and have enjoyed getting creative for our monthly competition! We've received some outstanding entries this month, including some lovely pictures celebrating Aardman's upcoming 40th birthday!
Well done to everyone who took part and brightened up the gallery with your colourful pictures and models. Here are our August winners:
First prize goes to Tiche for 'Gromit in the Wrong Clothes' - we loved this superb model of Gromit dressed up in Wallace's tradmark tank top and tie, and there are some very impressive model-making skills on show. Keep up the good work, Tiche!
And our runners up this month are:
Sleepy Panda for 'Exploring Green Hills' - a beautiful drawing of Gromit in his flying machine, complete with porridge gun! Looks like a great day for exploring...
Gromitsbuddinginventor for 'Bedtime with Gromit' - a lovely picture of Gromit and Fluffles reading bedtime stories to their young 'uns. An original idea, beautifully drawn and full of detail.
Tothemoonandback for 'Come on Boy, We're Going on an Adventure!' - a stunning drawing with a sweet reference to Aardman's forthcoming 40th celebrations.
Missed out on a prize this time? Don't worry - our new competition is now open for your submissions. This month, with Aardman's birthday taking place at the beginning of September we'd love to see pictures of your favourite moments from Wallace and Gromit or a birthday-themed idea - how do you think Aardman's much-loved duo would celebrate this milestone birthday? This month our lucky winners and runners up will receive a copy of the new The Art of Aardman book, a lavish hardback book that delves into the Aardman archives and is filled with wonderful concept art and designs, as well as extracts from the sketchbooks of Peter Lord, Nick Park and Richard Starzak.
