Telling Tales 10th Anniversary Video Contest 

To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, Telling Tales invites EVERYONE to enter our Video Contest. Make a short video about a favourite Telling Tales experience: Tell us what the festival means to you and your family, or tell us about a favourite author you met or book you read because of Telling Tales.

The possibilities are endless!

Create the video with your family, friends, classmates, or even as a selfie. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Just be yourself!

Here’s the best part. Just for participating, you could WIN YOUR VERY OWN AUTHOR! At least for a day, anyway. Three lucky winners will receive an AUTHOR VISIT by one of our Telling Tales authors! Imagine winning this prize for your school, class, or service group. You’ll be a superhero!
