Children and young people aged four to 18 years are being challenged to make their own picture book on and around World Book Day with the launch of the ReadingZone WBD Picture Book Competition 2016. The competition is running in homes, schools and libraries until Friday 22nd April and the winners will be announced in June 2016.
Author and illustrator Mick Inkpen (creator of Kipper) will select the winning entries across three Categories. These include: Young Creators (ages four to six years); Primary (ages seven years plus) and Secondary (ages 11 years plus). One overall winner will be chosen. There is an additional Achievement Award for the most enthusiastic ‘behind the scenes’ activities that have gone into making picture book entries, such as the whole school getting involved.
Picture books entered for the award can be made by individuals and groups and any media can be used. Each picture book can be up to 24 A4 pages.
Each winning individual, school or library will receive 50 printed copies of their picture book; a selection of picture books or fiction titles, and a free author / illustrator visit will be given to the overall winner. The Guardian children’s books website will also feature the winning picture book. Visit www.Readingzone.com for further tips, guidelines and entry details.
Last year’s picture book competition attracted over 1,300 picture book entries and we have estimated that some 13,000 children took part in creating a picture book during the course of the competition.
