A chance to show off your creativity and dream camping set-up to fellow outdoor enthusiasts across the UK, Cotswold Outdoor have launched an online competition to ‘Design Your Dream Camping Pitch’. The winner’s effort, judged by Cotswold Outdoor’s in-house experts, will secure a 3-night Camping and Caravanning Club stay, plus camping bundle this summer. With further prizes for second and third place. *

Overlooking the sea, high-up in the mountains or hidden amongst the forest – everyone has a place that comes to mind when thinking about their dream camping pitch. Whether it’s a real location, or somewhere made up, Cotswold Outdoor are asking the UK public to get creative this summer. Designing and sharing their fantasy camping pitches, using whatever tools come to hand.

Pens & paper, Lego and playdough will be a few of the most commonly owned design materials. However, entrants could decide to build a campsite on top of their favourite cake, by utilising their favourite video game or preferred design software. The options are unlimited – the more imaginative and artistic, the better.

To submit your creations and be in with a chance to win all you need to do is share a picture via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, tagging in Cotswold Outdoor alongside the hash-tag #MyDreamPitch. Planning permission not necessary.
