Lit in Colour’s Creative Student Prize prompts young people to explore their relationship with books and reading by asking the question: what place do books have in your world?
You may be looking forward to a summer of reading, or you may not remember the last time you read a book outside of school. If you’re aged 14-18 and live in the UK or Republic of Ireland, we want to hear from you.
In partnership with Adobe, the ultimate prize is a free MacBook Air, complete with a year-long subscription to Adobe suite. Runners up will receive Beats by Dre headphones, and a Penguin audiobook package. Ten finalists will have their responses published on the Lit in Colour website.
We're accepting submissions in a number of formats:
We'll also ask you to write up a short synopsis to contextualise your application.
If you've read our top tips and are ready to apply, fill out our application form by Friday 17 September.
