Terms & Conditions

The ‘Bedrock book cover’ KS2 competition is a competition for all primary schools (secondary schools may enter our competition for secondary schools). Schools do not have to be a Bedrock customer to enter. Only teachers may enter – entries that come direct from students will unfortunately not be accepted. To enter the competition, teachers must select the winning book cover design from their school and, by 26 March 2021, submit it either via Twitter (including ‘#BedrockBookCover’) or email. The entry that, in the judges’ opinion, best reflects the essence of the book will be the winning entry and will form the brief to the Bedrock artist, who will use it to create the final book cover. The winner will be informed by Monday 12 April 2021 and the final design shared at a later date. By entering the competition, schools agree that Bedrock Learning may publicise their entry on its social media and other promotional channels, and that the winning school will be named in our publicity. At the winning school’s discretion, the winning child will also be named. We take data protection very seriously and so will not share entrants’ personal information with any third party. Good luck!
