There are just a few days left to send in entries for Animal Aid’s nationwide youth art and poetry competition.

The competition is open to anyone between the ages of 11 and 16. All they have to do is create some artwork, or write a poem, on the theme of whether it’s right to eat animals.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, and the winning entries will be displayed at a London awards ceremony, where the winners will be given their prizes by TV presenter Wendy Turner-Webster.

All entries should be clearly marked on the back with the entrant’s name, age and address and sent to: Art and Poetry Competition, Animal Aid, The Old Chapel, Bradford Street, Tonbridge, Kent, TN9 1AW.

For more information see or call 01732 364546.
