Frequently Asked Questions

What is the competition for?

We are running the MOX’s Creation Competition to celebrate the opening of our Museum! We are asking the public to submit their Museum themed creations. Your creation can be anything that celebrates our Museum and Oxford’s history. You could write a poem, sing a song, create a poster- the list is endless. We only ask that your entry includes the words “Museum of Oxford.”

Who can enter the competition?

Anyone, aged 0 to 100, can enter the competition. We will be choosing the competition winners in three categories- individuals, families and community groups.

However, please note there are limitations of the number of people to enter as a group. For more information on your eligibility, please see our terms and conditions.

How do I enter the competition?

To enter the competition, please send a clear image, video or sound file of your creation to our Museum inbox. Please ensure to add the subject “MOX Creations” to your email and include your name, age, the title of your creation (if applicable) and your contact information.
