National Competition Launched 26 March 2018

Philip Pullman launches National Competition

Renowned author to pen special piece for Woodland Trust competition winner

Philip Pullman – author of the His Dark Materials trilogy and The Book of Dust – has launched a competition with conservation charity the Woodland Trust.

The competition is asking children from across the UK to draw their own woodland–themed daemon. The best entry will be awarded with an exclusive short piece written by Philip about the daemon, and also a copy of his latest novel The Book of Dust

Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust, said: “The existence of daemons is one of the defining features of my literary world. They are a character’s animal counterpart that helps define them as a person, and could be just about anything – from a mischievous pine marten to a grand osprey.

“I very much look forward to seeing the woodland daemons children create for themselves, and am excited about bringing some/one of them to life.”

The competition is open to all children up to 16 years of age. All parents have to do is upload their child’s drawing to the Woodland Trust website at www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/daemon by 16th April 2018.

The Woodland Trust believes all families should have easy access to woods and trees. Recent studies have shown that access to woodland can make us physically healthier, improve mental wellbeing and increase quality of life. By encouraging and nurturing children’s love for nature and wildlife, trees will continue to have custodians in the future.
