I’m incredibly excited about sharing this post with you, which is about a competition I recently was informed about – if you’re aged 5 to 16, or know anyone who is, it’s definitely worth reading on! 🙂
The Young Creatives award is run by Holiday Cottages UK, and aims to showcase creative talent across the country through the competition. It’s run in partnership with Photobox, Puffin Books and WHSmiths, who are the suppliers for the £2500 worth of prizes up for grabs.
Well-loved UK authors Chris Bradford (Young Samurai) and Jeremy Strong (Beware Killer Tomatoes) are the judges of the contest, and you can create anything along these lines to enter:
- short story
- art work
- creative video
along the theme of “where is your favourite place in the UK?”
Prizes that can be won include holiday vouchers, photography prizes from Photobox, and lots of books!
If you or someone you know is interested in entering, visit the Young Creatives website to find out more about submitting entries. The competition closes on April 15th. Good luck – and if you enter, I’d love to see what you made, so tweet me @GeorgiaReads! 🙂
That sounds really cool, and I would totally do it, but I don’t know much about the UK & I don’t live there. Oh, well. Good luck!
Cool , i.m entering , i was going to enter the 500 words but this sounds cool.
Ooh, good luck with both!:)
