International Mud Day

It's Mud Day on Saturday!

(COMPETITION NOW CLOSED) Enter our Mud Day Photo Competition and you could win a £150 Muddy Faces voucher.

To celebrate International Mud Day we want to create the biggest ever gallery of muddy photos - to show the world how amazing and brilliant mud can be.

It's not about the quality of the photo - you don't need to be a professional photographer - we want you to capture the essence of Mud Day - the joy of mud, the muddiest play, the dirtiest faces, the messiest mess - anything muddy goes!

  • Our favourite photo will win a £150 Muddy Faces voucher!
  • Plus 2 runner up prizes of £50 vouchers.

We particularly welcome photos from under-represented groups, including children/people with disabilities or from diverse backgrounds.

How to enter:

Send your photos to - unless they are very big, or you're sending several, in which case try using We Transfer.

We'll be sharing the photos on our website, in our newsletters and on social media, so make sure you have the correct permissions before sending - full terms & conditions, and help with sending your photos, here.

** More to win! **

There will be instant Muddy Giveaways on social media every day this week too - check us out on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Mud Day is Saturday 29 June...

... but any day is a great day to celebrate mud! So if your setting isn't open, or Saturday is errands day, maybe you can find a way to revel and wallow in mud another day?
