Create a Magazine Competition

The National Literacy Trust, a UK based charity, have an exciting competition called ‘The Editor Challenge’ where Key Stage 2 pupils have the opportunity to create their own publication. The idea behind the competition is to promote reading for pleasure and writing for a purpose.

Pupils can choose whether to work on their own issue of Girl Talk or Mega magazine published by Immediate Media. There’s a bundle of support materials such as templates, instructions and images and great prizes to be won. Activities include a celebrity feature, a review, a quiz and storyboard and a front cover.


We think kids will love these activities so why not register your school and give it a try?
