August was Kids Month at Booktopia, and to celebrate we ran a colouring in competition, thanks to our friends at Random House Australia.
We received so many entries, the response was amazing! Thanks to everyone who entered and every child for their hard work and beautiful colouring in.
Of course, the hardest part is picking a winner. Taking into account skill, age and all-round creativity, we are proud to announce the winner of the Random House Australia Book Pack is:
Bella Vr, of Edge Hill in QLD
But that’s not all. Because we received so many entries, we’ve decided to give even more prizes away.
To the pictures our panel of judges deemed to also be in the top 10, you’re receiving book packs of your own from us! Congratulations to:
K. O’Brien, Raymond Terrace, NSW
S. Gullotti, The Vines, WA
N. Nagel, Adelaide, SA
S. Dezius, Denmark, WA
L. Evans, Alligator Creek, QLD
L. Patmore, North Macksville, NSW
B. Wooderson, Bundamba, QLD.
S. Connell, Mudgeeraba, QLD
E. Maclean, Coogee, NSW
But wait, there’s still more. We’re also giving away a $10 Booktopia Gift Voucher to the following brilliant entries. Some people had more than one child enter, so there may be multiple vouchers going to different children. Congratulations to:
