CITV’s Share a Story returns for 2017!

16 May 2017

CITV’s BAFTA-winning competition, Share a Story, has returned to the channel and is looking for a new bunch of creative kids to make the leap from storytellers to filmmakers!

Opening during National Share a Story Month the competition is simple with children aged 5 to 12 years just needing to write and draw a short story.

Writers, animators and TV producers help select the four finalists in each age category with the talented winners announced following an online vote. The four lucky children will then have their stories turned into animations and broadcast on CITV in October half term.

To top off the prize the winning kids also visit ITV Manchester for a script workshop day with children’s author & poet Michael Rosen. Here they will also meet their animators to help direct the films and record their own voiceover.

Everything kids need to enter is available at itv.com/shareastory, including the storyboard and story page templates they need to complete. 

So get your young ones to embrace their inner story teller and let their imaginations run wild.
