Beehive painting competition

Are you creative? Do you fancy leaving a permanent legacy of your time at LSE? As part of Green Week, LSE Bees is offering one of its hives for painting and we need YOU to submit a design idea! If your idea is chosen, you will have the chance to paint one of LSE’s very own beehives which will then be displayed as part of Green Week, 9-13 February 2015.

Entries will be judged by an expert panel of bee-lovers: Dr Luke Dixon, LSE’s expert beekeeper; Allan Blair, Director of Facilities Management Estates Division; and Stan Shillington, President of the LSE SU Beekeeping Society.

Design scope

You will have four sides of a white WBC hive to paint (but not the very top of the roof – that’s being left for Green Week signatures):

And 946ml (one quart) of each of these three shades:

The hives are available to view to scope out your design if needed – just contact the LSE SU Beekeeping Society at to find out the date of the next hive visit.

How to enter:

Send a scanned image of your design to by Friday 23 January at 5pm to enter the competition. The winner will be announced on Wednesday 28 January.

IMPORTANT: You must be available to paint the hive on campus at LSE between Thursday 29 January and Friday 6 February.
