Online Book Week Competitions

We are hosting a writing and drawing competition online until Wednesday 8 September 2021.

The Drawing Competition is open to children from Grades K – 2. We are asking children to draw a picture of their favourite place in the world – real or imaginary.

The Writing Competition is open to children from Grades 3 – 6. We are asking them to write a short story about their favourite places in the world, real or imaginary. There are vouchers to be won.

Don’t worry if you cannot access an entry form online, please draw your picture or write your story on a sheet of paper and email it to us: [email protected] with all your contact details.

Book Week is a wonderful time of year to celebrate Australian authors, books, reading and dress up as a favourite book character. Happy drawing and writing! Here is the link to the competition:
