Enter the Telling Tales App Photo Contest to win an author visit to your school

Books are full of magic and adventure, and have the power to transport readers to new destinations.

We’re looking for creative and fun photos that feature your favourite reading spot. Whether it’s in your room, at the park, or on a cross-country family adventure, show us how stories take you anywhere.

Snap a selfie, or take a photo of a loved one reading a book in their favourite reading nook for an opportunity to win an exclusive author visit. This includes one of our fabulous presenters speaking at your school, a book signed by the author or illustrator, and an exclusive meet and greet with them! Other prizes include family passes, and of course, books.

We think the Telling Tales Festival is a perfect place to read a book! Be sure to share a few pictures of you and your family reading at the Festival, whether it’s under a tree, in a beautiful building, on the train or even with a character!

1st Prize – Telling Tales Author Experience at your school or classroom (Value: Priceless)
