Festival launches it Book App Competition

Sunday 26th February 2012

Win the chance to have your work published as an interactive book!

A unique opportunity to have your unpublished children’s story created into an App for iPad by a leading technology agency.

Interactive books are the most exciting advance in digital publishing for children, giving them the opportunity to really engage in reading by involving them in the story, and even helping them to learn to read.
We are looking for unpublished author/illustrators with a lively, fun story aimed at young children up to 6 years of age, and which could be adapted as an interactive App. We are particularly interested in entries from author/illustrators who have failed as yet to secure a publisher.

Your story will then be created into an App which will be available for download from the iTunes App Store.
