BFBS Launches ‘Forces Voices’ Creativity Competition
During this difficult time, we know that lots of people are getting creative at home to keep their spirits up or children entertained - but they may feel that all their hard efforts are going to waste as these masterpieces end up in a box or on their hard drive.
At BFBS we want to encourage people to share their lockdown creations through ‘Forces Voices’, a creativity competition that allows adults and children to either get creative from scratch or present pieces they’ve already made and want to share with the world.
You can enter as an adult or encourage your child to put forward their own masterpiece, as there will be a £500 Amazon voucher for the best child and adult submission in each category.
Each piece will be judged by an expert in one of the following eight categories:
- Written word / Audio (Adult)
- Written word / Audio (Child)
- Video (Adult)
- Video (Child)
- Arts and Crafts (Adult)
- Arts and Crafts (Child)
- Photography (Adult)
- Photography (Child)
Visit www.forcesvoices.com/enter to enter the competition and find all the Ts&Cs.
If the prospect of winning £500 to spend on Amazon isn’t enough, we want to celebrate all the isolation inspirations even further by showcasing all the entries on forces.net for everyone to enjoy.
