Library Week Competitions

3 fantastic new Library Week competitions have launched. One will close on Monday 16 August and 2 on Friday 20 August during Library Week.

GRAPHIC NOVEL COMPETITION Jason Winter, winner of last year’s Graphic Novel competition, has created the first 4 frames of a graphic novel and we are asking school students, design students and anyone who is able to draw to enter this competition. Artists have a week to illustrate and upload their own 4 frames to follow on from the story posted to the website so far. A winner will be chosen at the end of each week and their frames will be made the next permanent line of the story. There are 2 age categories (13 - 18 yrs and 19 yrs +) for this competition meaning there will be 2 versions of the story. View the graphic novel so far and enter here.

LOVE YOUR LIBRARY VIDEO COMPETITION We're asking amateur film makers of all ages to make a short film in the style of a movie trailer telling us why you love your library or just promoting libraries in general. Videos could incorporate music, comedy, dance or interviews but should be no more than 3 minutes long. Clips can be uploaded to the Library Week website and judging will be by popular vote.

TE REO INTERACTIVE STORY Much like the Library Week ‘You might be surprised’ interactive story this is a competition where YOU decide what happens next! This time, however, you submit your stories in Te Reo Maori!

The theme will centre around the Te Reo theme of library week “He Taonga Te Pātai” (to ask is precious) and the first week’s story is written by well known Te Reo children’s author, Peti Nohotima. The interactive Te Reo story has some fabulous book prizes to be won each week and at the end of the competition one student will win the grand prize with and emphasis on participation and creativity.

The length of your story should be 2-300 words. A winner will be judged each week by 4pm Friday and the new storyline will be up and running by the following Monday. This competition ends first day of library week, 16 August 2010, with thanks to Maori Language Week and Huia Publishers!
