Do you love writing, drawing and making up stories? Use your creative talents and win fantastic prizes with our nationwide contest organised in partnership with Eurostar, Nature et Découvertes and the MUZ. This year we’re asking you to create an illustrated book opening with the line If I were an animal. Would you crawl on the ground, go on all fours or fly high in the sky? What skills do you have and how would you use them to survive? What’s your daily life on Planet Earth? Give us an insight into the ups and downs of your life in the natural world. Are you a lion in love with a mouse or a lonely wolf looking for friends? Are humans your enemies or are they changing the way that you live? Have you been forced to leave your home or become an endangered species? It’s up to you!
-There are two age categories: Talented Turtles (ages 6 to 9) and Brilliant Birds (ages 10-15)
-The illustrated book needs a cover, a back cover, a title, and a story of at least 2 pages.
-It can be written it in French or English; take it up a notch and make it bilingual!
-Unfortunately, previous winners are not eligible to win.
