    Some of my students are interested in completing the next writing contest (on their own time) and one of them asked me if his story could include some graphics? I know the rules said no picture books, but he had some pictures within his writing.

    • Hi Jennifer,

      Thanks for your enquiry. It’s great that some of your students want to go in the next writing contest.

      Unfortunately, we can’t accept any pictures. These competitions are entirely based on ‘writing’ and we’re not able to make any judgements on illustrations.

      Also, pictures can present formatting issues, and make files very large.

      In addition to this, we are trying to encourage young writers to submit work in the same format it would be required by a publisher – that way if they decide to send their work off, they’ll know how it needs to be formatted.

      I hope this helps. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
