Opportunity from: Searchlight Writing for Children Awards
From the Searchlight website:
Entries are invited for our new illustrated picture book competition. We’re searching for exciting stories that young children will ask for again and again!
Show us stories in development: rough sketches for the majority of the book, carefully positioned text, and at least two finished double-page spreads in colour. If you have a picture book that is ready for publication or a self-published one, you can enter, too. Entrants can submit individually or collaborate in illustrator/author pairs.
Judge: Caroline Wakeman of Caroline Wakeman Literary Agency
Entry fee per story: £9
