Scribble Press and Faber-Castell welcome young artists and writers to enter their Faber-Castell Scribble Your Story Contest. Winners will receive $100 worth of Faber-Castell art products and more.

 

Scribble Press, the place to imagine, create and publish original art and stories, is partnering with Faber-Castell to give children the chance to win creative prizes in the Faber-Castell Scribble Your Story Contest! Every month for a year, beginning in August 2011, one creative writer who makes a book using an assortment of Faber-Castell art products will be selected as the Faber-Castell Scribble Your Story Winner. Winners will receive $100 worth of Faber-Castell premium children's art products and special recognition at Scribble Press studios.

All contest winners and stories entered in the contest will be available for free download from Scribble Press' online library of eBooks, available at scribblepress.com.

"We're so excited to be partnering with Faber-Castell," said Anna Barber, Scribble Press co-founder and CEO. "They offer high-quality creative art products, sure to inspire any child who picks up a marker. The partnership speaks to our mission of encouraging kids to write and celebrating the stories they create and share."

 

There are several ways to enter the contest:

1. Make a book at any Scribble Press studio with Faber-Castell markers.

2. Use the Author's Tool Kit, Scribble Press' take-home book kit, to make a book and mail or bring it in for publishing.

3. Create your story at home with your own paper and Faber-Castell markers and e-mail it to [email protected].

4. Create your story at home with your own paper and Faber-Castell markers and mail it to any Scribble Press studio.


"Faber-Castell and Scribble Press are excited to encourage kids to create books the old-fashioned way," said Heather Lambert-Shemo, Brand Manager at Faber-Castell. "Faber-Castell's quality products combined with the professional printing and binding at Scribble Press give kids something special they can be proud to share."

Children 14 and under are eligible to enter the contest. Books will be judged on the three C's: creativity, colorfulness, and captivation. Each month the winner will be chosen by a different children's or young adult author.

Scribble Press is dedicated to inspiring imagination and self-expression, and celebrating the pride that comes with sharing the finished product.

Faber-Castell is celebrating 250 years of providing premium art products for artists of all ages, and the company's premium art products are available wherever quality art supplies are sold, including at Scribble Press.
