Being Ourselves - BAFTA Kids selfie competition
There are lots of things which make us all the same but we all have that unique thing that makes us special. Whether it’s a hobby, a subject, or something completely different about you, we all have something which helps us be ourselves.
We’re working with our fantastic partner, Place2Be, as part of Children’s Mental Health Week 2018. The theme for this year is ‘Being Ourselves’ and for this competition we’re asking you to think about the one thing that makes you, YOU!
We want you to draw your own selfie or self-portrait which will help us to see what makes you special. A selection of lucky winners will have their drawings turned into an animation by Karrot Entertainment, the talented animation studio who created BAFTA-winning show Sarah & Duck and more!
We can only accept entries which include a parent or guardian’s contact email or phone number.
- Have a think about what makes you special before you start drawing? Are you kind? Are you good at something?
- If you’re really stuck for ideas, ask a teacher, parent, guardian or friend what makes you special. Watch the Presenting Masterclass video to see what makes presenter Ben and Katie special.
- In your selfie – make it very clear what makes you special. If it’s something you do or a skill you have, show yourself doing that thing in your drawing.
- Use colour to brighten up your drawing – it can also help show off your special quality more.
The closing date for the competition is 5pm GMT on Monday 19 March 2018.
