Children with vision impairment are invited to submit a piece of creative writing for the World Book Day writing competition.

Hosted by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), the competition will be held on March 7.

Entries must be based on the theme of adventure. The submissions will be judged by celebrated children’s author Sir Michael Morpurgo, who has written books such as War Horse and Private Peaceful.

The overall winner will receive ten signed copies of Morpurgo’s books.

The RNIB encourages submissions from children and young people aged between five and 12, in line with their motto ‘See differently’.

Submissions can be made from 9am on January 1 until midnight on February 18.

Entries can be sent as a Word document, MP3 audio or MP4 video via email.
