Sandown Virtual Carnival 2021

Whilst we haven't been able to run our usual programme of events this year, we've come up with a fabulous summer holiday idea for all the family. In fact, anyone can take part in our Sandown Virtual Carnival fancy dress photo competition!

All you need is a sense of fun, a camera and a Google account.

To enter, you'll need to take a photo in fancy dress with a carnival theme and submit it using the link below.

There are 3 cash prizes available for each of our 4 categories!

Entries are open from now until 25th August 2021 at 1pm (BST).

We ask that photos are taken on the Isle of Wight. For full rules and info please see the link on the entry form below.
