Share your Dreams Competition 

To celebrate the opening of Canterbury’s latest exhibition, The BFG in Pictures, at the Beaney we’d like to invite you to share your dreams with us!

Whether you dream in words or pictures enter our ‘whoopsy whiffling ‘competition to have the chance to win a professional illustration of your dream which will be displayed alongside this special exhibition.

Runners up will also win their own copy of the Roald Dahl book collection.

The competition will be split into 3 categories:

Category 1: Under 6yrs

Picture entry only: Send us a jpeg image of your favourite dream with a brief explanation of what the dream was about. The more imaginative the better!

Category 2: 7-12 yrs

Picture, Poem or Short Story

Picture: Send us a jpeg image of a dream you would try to catch if you were the BFG. Don’t forget to include a brief explanation of what the dream was about and who you would give it to. No more than 100 words.

Poem or Short Story: If drawing isn’t for you then why not send us in a poem or a short story about a dream you would catch and who you would give it to, but remember the BFG is very busy so keep it short. No more than 200 words.

Category 3: Big Kids 13+ yrs

Poem or Short Story only
Get those creative juices flowing and delve into the depths of your imagination to create a masterpiece with words! Send us your poem or short story for a chance to have it translated into an illustration and win a workshop session with a published author.

No more than 200 words so make them count!
