Hi there,
I was just wondering if i had to upload only 1 thing or can i do say and essay and a picture to go with it?

Thank you.


Hey Lauren – an essay and a picture would be great. We have provided three slots for uploads – use as many as you like. 🙂 Good luck!


How are you going to judge between a piece of artwork and a essay .


Hi Imaan, regardless of format, our judges will be looking at lots of different criteria when deciding a winner, including: research, effort, accuracy, creativity, originality, and personality. The ideas being put forward will also be rated and compared. Ultimately, though, Tony will be given the final say and his word will be final. 😉 Hope that helps!
