Share a Story Competition 2017!

Competition closes 16th June!

Are you aged between 5 and 12? Have you got a brain full of brilliant stories? Can you draw the coolest characters in the country? Do you want to see your brilliant stories and cool characters on TV?

Well this is the competition for you!

CITV's Share a Story competition gives you the chance to get your stories and characters turned into an animation and shown on CITV, where it can be watched by your family, your friends, your school -and the whole country!

Could you be a Lucky Winner?

Our squad of judges -including writers, TV producers and animators - read through all your entries and select three stories in each age category as our finalists.

The final four winning stories are then chosen via an online vote.

If you're a winner, you'll come to CITV to meet and work with the Marvelous Michael Rosen and the Masterful Voice Artist Marc Silk.

You'll get to record your own voice over and also guide the animators in bringing your story to life.

So what are you waiting for? Lets get sharing!
