Cape Town International Kite Festival – 10 & 11 Oct 2009
Creative Kite Competition Entry Form
The Creative Competition takes place on Sunday 11th October from 14h00. It is all about originality
and creativity using simple, affordable materials to make a kite and have some fun. Think
recyclable, think ‘green’.
There will be some of the world’s most hi-tech kites at the Cape Town International Kite Festival
but great kites can be made with very simple and cheap materials. Most adults can reminisce
fondly about the plastic bag or bamboo-and-newspaper kites of childhood. Great for family fun,
great for team-building!
To take part in the Creative Kite Competition create your kite at home and bring it to the Festival on
Sunday. Judging starts at 14h00 sharp.
Here are the rules!
1. There are three categories:
Individual junior – 16 years old and younger (entry fee R10 per kite)
Individual adult – 17 years old and older (entry fee R10 per kite)
Corporates (R100 per kite)
People’s Post Creative Kite Award: there will be a special prize in all three categories for
kites made using the People’s Post community newspaper.
2. The maximum cost of all the materials used to make your kite must not be more than R25 per
kite. Entrants to provide a list of all the materials used noting the costs. Only the material used
needs to be counted. E.g. If a newspaper costs R10 and you’ve used one page out of 20
pages, then the cost is 50c. (Good news – the People’s Post is a free community paper so
you can use as many pages as you like!)
3. Kites must be hand–made. No shop bought kites allowed!
4. Kites must be able to fly.
5. Register your kite before 13h30 on Sunday 11 October at the INFO station. Judging will take
place at the festival from 14h00.
Judging – points will be awarded for:
1. Creativity, design and decoration
2. Workmanship. Your kite must be able to fly, but we will also judge it on the ground to see
the care and attention to detail you put into it.
