It gives us great pleasure to announce the longlist for our Best Children’s Picture Book (text) 2022 competition.
Over the last two months your amazing stories have been read, re-read and considered by our team of readers. The standard of writing was excellent and they found it incredibly difficult to decide between the stories. A huge thank you to the team for their time and commitment.
Whether your picture book has been longlisted or not, you are all talented writers with great ideas and we urge you to keep writing and sending your words out into the world. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to read your work.
