Following the success of the ‘Big Lit Programme 2016/17’, Joseph & Benjamin are once again running their annual creative writing competition in a bid to find young talented writers in the community. This year the competition is bigger and better and has some great prizes up for grabs.
Meet our judges for The Ultimate Comic Strip Challenge and Mini Writers Big Books Competition. Our panel of judges are comprised of author, journalist, creative artist and film maker.
Joseph and Benjamin would like to thank and congratulate all those who entered the Ultimate Comic Strip Challenge 2017 and helped make it a success. We had over 200 amazing entries from young children and the judging panel had a tough time selecting the three winners. After much thought and deliberation, the three finalists were selected. They are…
Do you love reading books? Do you enjoy telling and writing stories? If so, this competition is for you!
Do you enjoy drawing? Does your mind wander off to exciting adventures? Maybe you are fighting with the villains, saving the world, travelling back in time or even a superhero with special powers? If so, then this competition is for you!
The Big Lit Programme is an innovative programme which aims to inspire young children to take up literacy and creative writing, using various materials and platforms that suit individual skillset. There is much talent in the community, however, children need an opportunity to unleash their creative skills. This programme hopes to find exceptional writers through a range of exciting and creative competitions, whilst raising aspirations in young people.
Joseph and Benjamin would like to thank all those who entered the Mini Writers, Big Books Competition 2016. We had a phenomenal response and therefore took longer than anticipated to announce the winners. The standards were so high but we can only have three winners, the panel of Judges were impressed and thought the stories were lively and fun to read.
A competition set for young children to write a ‘short story of up to 500 words’. The competition is about finding and celebrating talented young writers from the community.
