Each year we run a writing competition for children aged between 5 and 16 to celebrate their creativity and writing talent. We hope to inspire children and help them become confident writers.

Short stories, poems, articles, screenplays and play scripts that are submitted are assessed to select the top five entries from each category. These shortlisted entries are presented to our expert panel of judges comprised of distinguished poets, authors and other notable figures from the arts and media industry.

Shortlisted writers are invited to a star studded awards ceremony where the winners are announced.

To easily submit your child or student’s writing, please visit the 2020 Competition page.
