Design Your Own Superhero Competition

To celebrate the very exciting launch of my debut picture book, Superheroes Don't Get Scared, I am running a Design Your Own Superhero Competition!

Superheroes Don't Get Scared Competition Graphic

It's SUPER fun and easy to enter and is open to all UK residents aged under 13! All you have to do is:

  1. Design your very own superhero. The more imaginative the better! Make sure the drawing shows the Superhero's name, their power(s), and, because this book is all about facing your fears, the drawing should show the Superhero's fear and how they face this fear. 
  2. Put your child's first name and age on their entry. 
  3. Then launch a photo of the superhero over to me on social media with the hashtag #SuperheroesDontGetScared, making sure to tag @TriggerPub and Kate Thompson so I definitely see it! You can tag me using the following accounts:
  4. Entries must be posted by 11.59 BST on 30th September 2020. 
  5. I will choose three winners after the closing date and notify you by direct message to arrange signing details and delivery. 

Good luck!
