The Business Post Magazine 'Made by Children' Project

On April 26, The Business Post will publish a magazine made by children, for children. For more information on how kids can take part, including submitting a photograph or poem for consideration, read on

16th April, 2020
Submit your poem or photo for your chance to appear in the Business Post Magazine and win a prize

On Sunday April 26, we'll publish a very special issue of the Business Post Magazine made by children, for children.

That’s journalism, photography, art, poetry, book reviews and more, all by under 18s.

Our plan? To showcase just how resilient and creative Irish children are, even when staying apart and staying indoors.

Here's the challenge:

Creative Idea 1: take a photograph of anything that catches your eye, makes you think, or expresses something about you’re feeling, either in your home, from your window, in the garden, or within the 2 kilometre radius of your home*.

We’ll share those images on our social channels, and publish some of the most striking photographs in our special ‘Made by Kids’ issue of the Business Post Magazine on Sunday April 26.

Or why not try:

Creative Idea 2: write a poem, in any form, on any subject, and up to 160 words in total. Some ideas to get you thinking include “Life during the coronavirus,” or “How the world looks to me today.”

We will have some small prizes for those whose work is published in the Magazine, and an overall prize each for the winning photograph and winning poem, as selected by our arts and photo editors.

The deadline is Wednesday April 22nd at 2pm.

So get going, as there’s no time to lose!
