Share A Story 2016

Share A Story 2016

This year I'm really excited to be working with CITV as the Ambassador for their BAFTA winning Share a Story competition which gives children the opportunity to embrace their inner storyteller. Each year Share a Story asks children to enter their stories into our competition with the winning tales brought to life and put on CITV. I'll be running a scripting workshop with our four lucky winners to help develop their stories.

This competition is a fantastic chance to come up with a story and see it turned into an animation. What a treat! Imagine your words, your ideas, your story, on TV as an animated film. Something very, very special.

Share a Story is now open to children aged 5-12 until 29th April 2016. To find out more or to enter the competition head over to the CITV website.
