This month I was delighted to attend a fabulous book launch at West Australian’s beautiful Aquarium, AQWA. While I was there, I picked up an extra copy of Dianne Wolfer’s new book, The Shark Caller. (I even had her sign it for our winner!)
That’s this month’s magical prize! If your colouring in entry is selected as the winner, we’ll send you this beautiful paperback signed copy of a touching book about death, funeral rites, scuba diving in tropical waters, and the ancient legacy of shark calling.
So, Lets Get Decorating in our August Colour In Competition!
This month, we want to celebrate the wonderful “Australia: Story Country” theme of Children’s Book Week! Libraries and schools across the country are celebrating the place of Australian Stories in our children’s books. Now is your chance to create an Australian Story of your own.
Download and print this month’s colour in competition picture; get creative with pencils, textas, crayons, or whatever crafty creations you can think of to give the illustration some beautiful decoration. Don’t forget to add a little dialogue so that your beautiful picture can tell an Australian Story. Take a photograph or scan the image, then submit it with the form below or post it to the mailing address provided!
Right click and save as… to download.
You can enter as many times as you’d like so long as each entry has a unique colouring of the colour in competition illustration for the month. Entries are open to all ages and all countries but free postage is within Australia only. International winners need to pay $15 for shipping or can request a Kindle, Kobo, or iBooks edition instead of the paperback.
- Entries open August 1st, 2016
