Voices Writing Competition

Entry to the main Voices competition is now closed for 2020. 

Voices is our annual creative writing competition for children in care and care leavers who are aged 25 or under. They can enter any written content such as inspiring stories, poems, raps, and articles, with the chance to be shortlisted for our awards ceremony and to win fantastic prizes. 

The competition gives young people the chance to tell people what they want to say about their experiences and is a celebration of the creativity, talent and imagination of looked after children and care leavers. 

Voices 2020

The theme for Voices 2020 was ‘Dreams’.

This could be interpreted in any number of ways, such as, dreams from the past, hopes and dreams for the future… or anything else you can imagine.
