Make a Picture Book Competition


We are inviting those aged four to 18 years to create their own picture book, with author and illustrator Steven Lenton (illus of Dinosaurs Don't Draw and The Nothing to See Here Hotel) choosing the winners!

The competition closes on 30th April.

You can make your picture books by yourself or with friends and there are separate categories for each award, depending on your age:

Young Creators (4-6 years)
Primary Award (7-11 years)
Secondary Award (11-18 years)
Achievement Award - for the school with the most enthusiastic approach to the competition.

Everyone who enters with receive a certificate and a letter with feedback from the judges.

Picture book entries can also be returned, where stamped, addressed envelopes are provided.

This year's competition will be judged by author and illustrator Steven Lenton, who illustrates picture books and fiction.

The prizes for each category include:

- £100 worth of books from Macmillan Children's Books, as well as a set of signed books by Steven Lenton

- For the Secondary Category, feedback on the winning picture book from agency Plum Pudding.

- The overall winner will also win a free author event for their school by author and illustrator Steven Lenton, appropriate to the winner's age range.

Your picture book can be on any subject and you can use anything you like to create it - pencils, pens, paints or digital.

It can be up to 24 pages long, including covers, and we prefer books that are portrait (upright A4 page) rather than landscape (horizontal).

We're looking forward to reading all your picture books!
