Art Competition for Rowling

Head of Art, Mrs Joseph-Stewart, is today highlighting a great opportunity to enter a competition organised by an iconic writer of our times: JK Rowling.

It is in the news that JK Rowling, of Harry Potter fame, has released a new story this week, called ‘The Ickabog’. It is to be released, chapter by chapter, each week over the next seven weeks, to find it click on the website link attached below.

JK Rowling has also confirmed that she is running an illustration project alongside her release, which includes the chance to have the winning entry featured in the published copies of the book, due out for public sale later this year.

For those who wish to enter this competition, more details can be found on the link below. Alongside creating for JK Rowling, GMS would love to see your illustrations, too. Even if you’re only joining in for fun, please email your drawings to your Art and Design teacher, who will be awarding achievement points and Headteacher’s awards for the most creative and imaginative outcomes. The chance is that your artwork will be featured in an edition of The Voice!

A message from J K Rowling:

“The most exciting part, for me, at least, is that I’d like you to illustrate The Ickabog for me. Every day, I’ll be making suggestions for what you might like to draw. You can enter the official competition being run by my publishers, for the chance to have your artwork included in a printed version of the book due out later this year. I’ll be giving suggestions as to what to draw as we go along…

I won’t be judging the competition. Each publisher will decide what works best for their editions. However, if you, your parent or your guardian would like to share your artwork on Twitter using the hashtag #TheIckabog, I’ll be able to see it and maybe share and comment on it!

When the book is published in November, I’m going to donate all my royalties to help people who have been affected by the coronavirus. We’ll give full details later in the year.

I think that’s everything you need to know. I hope you enjoy reading it and I can’t wait to see your pictures!”

GMS art and design teachers are truly excited by this, so for those of you who wish to enter this competition, see the details on the links below.

There are no rules to this, so have fun, enjoy reading and let your imagination run wild!
