Last weekend to win!

The Moose Colouring Contest has been extended until the end of this weekend.

Beat the heat and spend some quality time with your crayons, colouring pens and pencils to colour or re-design the DML Moose. Or, break out those watercolours and oil paints on a fresh canvas and create your own moose.

Details below. Submit for your chance to win fun prizes!

Last chance: deadline extended!
3 categories. 3 prizes per category. All ages welcome.

MOOSE COLOURING + DESIGN CONTEST! Many of you are used to seeing the DML’s beloved Moose mascot at our Canada Day celebrations, but since we couldn’t be together in person this year – and with our moose in need of repair and some fresh paint – we invite you to bring the moose to life!

The DML Moose arrived in California in 2001 from Toronto, after a city-wide moose sculpture exhibit came to a close and someone connected Groupe Telecom (who owned the exhibit’s “data moose”) with the DML. In this video, meet the Moose and Michael Worry – longtime board member and friend of the DML and founder of Nuvation – who has graciously housed and transported our Moose over the past two decades.

New deadline: Sunday, June 12th

You can win awesome prizes* over three categories (see details in each category description).

Meet our Judges

Our judging team includes two esteemed creative Canadians:

Scott Boms is a cross-disciplinary design generalist, author, educator and speaker. He also designed our DML collector pins in honour of Canada’s 150th and for the DML’s 20th birthday last year, that many of you are lucky to own!
