Anne Frank Poetry Award 2020

Entries for the Arts & Minds schools-based competition are now open.

Aimed at children and young people from primary, secondary and special schools across the UK, the competition challenges children and young people to explore themes of race, diversity, equality and identity through artwork and creative writing.

The 3 categories include:

  • Creative writing: including all forms of creative writing such as stories, poetry and lyrics.
  • The Anne Frank Poetry Award: for poems inspired by the life and writing of Anne Frank.
  • Art: covers all entries of artwork using a variety of media, including photography, digital artwork (excluding film and animation) and collage. Students should be encouraged to be as creative as possible but stay within the competition guidelines.

Entries should reflect the competition’s aims to promote cultural diversity and equality and tackle racism in schools.

Prizes will be awarded to the best entries from across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales in the following categories.
