Sphen And Magic's Chick With A Birth Certificate 4

Our colony of seven Gentoo Penguin chicks are all grown up, there’s just one problem… the birth certificate of Sphen and Magic’s baby is missing a name and we need your help! 

We are putting out a call out for the public to help name the chick of the world’s most famous gay penguin couple and win the chance to meet the waddling family on the ice in our Sub-Antarctic Zone!

Now that you know a bit about the waddling chick, what should they be named? Submit your suggestion below and in 25 words or less tell us why you picked that name.

The competition is open to anyone and everyone around the world – borders do not apply when it comes to Sphen and Magic.

Don’t be afraid to be as creative or as meaningful as possible, because the winner will receive a penguin birth certificate PLUS the chance to go where very few have gone before – inside the Sub-Antarctic Zone to meet and snap selfies with Sphen, Magic and their chick. Those based in NSW will physically be invited on the ice and those living outside NSW and beyond Australia will be dialed in for a special private Zoom call with the famous family.

The competition is open from 7.00am AEST 20th January  until 11.59pm AEST on Sunday 24 January 2021 with the winner and the winning name selected and contacted on Wednesday 27 January 2021. Good luck!

Be as creative as you can!
