This year the festival theme is “the stories of Roald Dahl” and we are inviting you to create your very own drawing, poem or short story inspired by Roald Dahl.
Selected writers will have their work displayed on the day and also be in with a chance of winning £15, £10 or £5 book vouchers if they are placed in any of the categories. An overall winner will receive the fabulous Roald Dahl Treasury – An illustrated compendium of excerpts from all of his books and full reprints of 6 stories including Esio Trot and The Enormous Crocodile.
Local Children’s author Liz Flannagan has agreed to judge the competition and all prizes generously donated by The Book Case in Hebden Bridge.
There are two competitions to enter:
Drawing competition: (Year 2 and below): Draw your character (either an actual character created by Roald Dahl or your creation) on a sheet of A4 paper and send to the address below. Parents can help with some written character details if you wish.
Poetry and Writing Competitions (Year 3, 4 & 5 and 6, 7 & 8): Write or type your entry on sheets of A4 Lined or Plain paper (or use Microsoft Word for email entries). You can use Roald Dahl’s characters or your own imagined ones and can add a cover sheet and pictures if you wish – in fact we encourage it!
Closing date is 21st June 2015
Prizes will be awarded on festival day!
