Entry forms are available from the Town Council offices (open 10am – 12pm Monday – Friday), downloading from the Town Council website www.ilminster.gov.uk or collection from the Meeting House, Ilminster.

Guidelines for Entry
Your scarecrow does not need to be a traditional – let your imagination run wild. You can make a scarecrow from virtually anything and you are especially encouraged to use recycled materials.
Local traders could use scarecrows to effectively highlight their particular business, drawing on the theme of the business for creative inspiration.
1. Scarecrows can be built by families or individuals and can be any height up to a maximum of 1.8 metres.
2. Your scarecrow must be made from scratch.
3. Scarecrows will be judged on strength, durability to the weather, imagination and character.
4. Your entry may be a single scarecrow, a family or a group.
5. Your scarecrow should include an element of plant material which can be dried, fresh or living.
A list of scarecrows entered into the competition along with a map showing their locations, will be made available from Tuesday 4th June so that members of the public can walk around the town to view the entries.
