World Book Day Competitions 2018

World Book Day is on Thursday 1 March this year, and of course there will be plenty of prize-winning opportunities! Look out for photo competitions across Twitter and Facebook on the day itself (I’ve added a linky list to this post which I’ll add to!) – and here are a few fun competitions you can enter now. 

Win £900 of book tokens

Design a bookmark for World Book Day, and you could win loads of National Book Tokens! The winner in each age category (up to 8 years, 9-12 years and 13-16 years) will win £500 of tokens for their school, plus £200 for themselves and £200 for their teacher! A runner up in each category will win £250 tokens for school and £100 each for themselves and their teacher. Find out more here – entries must be signed by a teacher, and the closing date is 13th April 2018.

Win a year’s supply of books

Pizza Express want to see your bookmark designs too! Design a bookmark in one of their restaurants or download an entry form here and three winners will win a year’s supply (£250) of books. Fifteen runners up will win a £10 book token. Enter before 1st April 2018. Full details are at
