Almost taking part in a children’s book competition

A few weeks ago, I found out about a competition organized by a Polish book publisher Dwie Siostry. To take part, you had to send in a script or storyboard of your own book for children (in Polish or English) and 4 illustrations for the book. If the jury found your ideas and pictures good enough, you could win one of the prizes (publishing the book when it’s finished, money, etc.).

My friend Claire (who likes writing) and I (who can’t write at all) decided to try to send our entry as well. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it in time to meet the deadline. So now, we are left with a basic idea for a book and 3 illustrations that I did. That may sound a little disappointing, but it was fun, so who cares.

So far, it seems like one of my many unfinished projects. Hopefully, we finish the book anyway and try to send it in next year (the competition looks annual to me). In the meantime, you can look at the three pictures I did here (one of them is below, just to let you know what to expect).
