Stay at Home Poetry and Art Competition for children and adults too!

To be completed by: Mon 21 Sep 2020

Time: -Mon 21 Sep 2020 | Venue:

Bradford Libraries Poetry and Art competition in response to 2020 Covid-19 stay at home. We have 3 categories for both poetry and art - children 4 to 11 years (Reception to Y6); children 12 to 18 years (Y7 to Y13) and adults 18 years +. The closing date is Monday 21st September 2020.

At Bradford Libraries we believe Poetry and Creativity can be a great way of engaging our minds to explore what, how and why we feel a certain way. Now that we are relaxing Lockdown and we are starting to adapt to change in our daily lives, we wanted to reflect on our experiences living through these unusual times.  We want to think about things to celebrate; things that have made us sad or things that we have learnt, felt or seen for the first time. We are inviting the people of Bradford of all ages to submit their poetry or artwork for inclusion in one of two books.

The poems and artwork will be selected by a panel of judges.

We will produce two books - one book will feature poems and artwork by children & young people under 18 and one book will feature artwork and poems by adults (over 18).

For both there will an overall art winner which will feature on the cover of the book.

The closing date for entries is Monday 21st September and the winners will be announced on National Poetry Day Thursday 1st October 2020.

Please find attached the entry form which gives full competition details and conditions of entry.
