Entries are now open for the Read This! 2012 Creative Reading Prize being promoted through all Central West Libraries – Blayney, Canowindra, Cowra, Forbes, Manildra, Molong and Orange.
The project is a celebration of books for young adults and an opportunity for those aged between 12 and 18 years to share their love of books and reading with their peers in a creative way.
There is everything from jewellery, t-shirts to book sculpture, so there is really no limit to the imagination. You can see more examples on the competition website: readthis2012.com
Here’s how it works. Pitch your favourite book for others to read and love. Here’s your chance to convince them – and win! You might not only have them reading it, but you could also share in $40,000 worth of prizes.
Submit a creative idea in any format you choose, but here are some ideas to get you started:
Write a short story using the characters/setting
Make a video trailer
Write a poem or a song
Illustrate your favourite scene/character
Sew a costume
Make a model
Create an art piece
Submit your entries online at www.readthis2012.com and entries close 31 May. Good luck!
