Year 3: The Ickabog illustration competition!

Hello Year 3,


As we have been reading ‘The Ickabog’ by J.K Rowling in our reading lessons, I thought you might be interested to see this illustration competition!

“Calling all budding artists! J.K. Rowling is inviting you to help illustrate The Ickabog for her. Every day when chapters of the story are uploaded, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story as it goes along. You should let your imagination run wild!

The best bit is, if you are between seven and twelve years old, your parent or guardian on your behalf can enter your drawings or paintings into the official competition being run by J.K. Rowling’s publishers, for a once in a lifetime chance to be featured in The Ickabog book, which is published in November. The competition is now open in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India, the US and Canada, and will be extended to other countries very soon.

Your artwork must be entered by a parent or guardian, via the publisher’s own competition website in your country (see below) – the publishers are going to be judging all the competition entries.”

The link to enter is here:

This is so exciting! Good luck!
