Imagine a Journey - Illustration Competition

In May 2017 we launched an illustration competition with fantastic prizes to be won, including a visit to the International Children’s Literature Hay Festival in Aarhus, Denmark (26 – 29 October 2017).

This competition is now closed.

Young people were invited to draw a journey - real or imagined, literal or metaphorical. Take a look at some of the entries we received:
