Viral Colouring In

The Centre for Virus Research are launching a competition to promote our fantastic new CVR Colouring book! Created entirely by CVR scientists, the book gives a creative insight into the fascinating world of viruses. The competition will launch on 17th June on our social media channels @CVRInfo and and run for the remainder of the month.

To enter, we are asking people to download a free copy, print off a favourite pic and colour in – then tweet or email back to us at In return, we will select 10 winners who will receive a free copy of the book and a pack of pencils (along with some other MRC goodies).

We would like to send our book viral, so we’d be very grateful for any support in helping to share the competition when it launches on the 17th. Please feel free to enter of course! The book in print is very impressive.

I have set up a webpage with competition details – – where you can also download a free copy.

We will be evaluating all of this activity online via an incentivised survey in July/August.
