It is time to put your creative thinking caps on for the fourth uShaka Marine World Body Art competition taking place on Saturday 12 September 2009. This competition takes place at the uShaka Village Walk so bring the whole family for a day of fun.

This year the theme is “Dangerous Creatures” and artists are urged to pull out all the stops. Inspiration can be found at uShaka’s Dangerous Creatures Exhibition which features snakes, spiders, scorpions and frogs. Use these creatures in creating your winning design …

Of course no competition is complete without a prize and the winner of this one will walk away with R5000 in cash as well as a chance to go into the uShaka’s hall of fame. If you wish to take part you need to submit your entry to the uShaka Marine World Management Offices by 14h00 on Monday 7 September 2009. Your entry must consist of an A4 storyboard illustrating your idea and medium of choice as well as an 80-word concept explanation.

Not only will the competition be taking place, but there will be lots of entertainment as well with chances for the whole family to win great prizes. And don’t forget that all guests visiting the park on the day sporting a tattoo will only pay R10 for an uShaka Marine World combo ticket.

Ushaka Marine World is a unique aquarium experience as it is one of the five largest aquariums in the world and has a ship-wreck theme. You can view one of the largest collections of sharks in the southern hemisphere and amble your way through half a kilometre of themed viewing tanks, seven large aquarium tanks and 25 marine exhibits. You can also take a dip in the snorkel lagoon and swim with a few of the creatures in it or if you’re feeling brave you can get into the protective cage in the shark tank and get up close and personal with some of the sharks.

The uShaka Wet ‘n Wild entertainment centre is great fun, with water slides and pools that cater for every one (those who enjoy a bit of danger as well as those who like to take it easy). There are a number eateries and shops to spend some time in as well. There is always something to keep you busy at uShaka Marine World. Come and spend the day, participate in the competition, explore the sea world and conquer your fear of sharks.
