You should explain what inspired you to create the poem or artwork. This can be filmed using a Smart Phone and sent as an email to If you would prefer you child to write a short sentence instead. That’s fine too.

· Send submissions to Include parent’s name (if under 18 years) and email details, entrant’s name, date of birth, age, the title of the works and the video footage of ‘What Inspired Me’.
