BOOK PITCH 2020
Thank you to all those that entered! The final round will take place on August 20th, 2020. Details for streaming the competition will be announced shortly.
Many teenagers across the country are facing global and personal upheaval. At a time when we are facing two pandemics, anti-black racism and COVID-19, we at Inspire Teen Reads believe that literature serves not only as an outlet of self expression and creativity for generations, but as a medium for empowerment, action, awareness, and as an agent of transformative change.
This year, Inspire is holding our 5th Annual Book Pitch Competition, in which youth aged 12-18 are invited to enter our two categories: The Book Pitch category, and The Book Jacket Design category.
The Book Pitch category invites contestants to convince a panel of judges to read their favourite book in 5 minutes. New to this year is the Book Jacket Design category, in which young people nationwide are invited to redesign a book jacket for their favourite book. Finalists from both categories will be invited to present their pitches and creations to a panel of esteemed authors at The Word On The Street’s online festival, where 3 winners will be chosen from both categories.
Deadline to submit was July 31st, 2020 at 11:59 EST.
