With reference to my last blog, we need funding to progress the competition and maximise it's potential impact. Our experience is that offering good prize money attracts more entries. We also want to produce a 2019 Kind Kids Calendar of the best entries, for retail sale on a non-profit basis. We estimate that we need funding of £3,000, to cover costs and prizes.

We may believe that children are not interested in anything, just because they are not interested in what we’re interested in.
