Cathy Hopkins joins CITV judging panel for Share A Story 2015

CITV have announced that Michael Rosen, former children’s laureate and writer of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, and Cathy Hopkins, author of books for teens including the ‘Mates, Dates’ and ‘Million Dollar Mates’ series of books will join Peter Andre on the judging panel for this year’s Share a Story.

Share a Story not only gives kids from 5 to 12 years old the chance to have their story turned into a short animation and get it shown on the CITV channel – the lucky winners will also join Peter for a day at CITV in MediaCityUK, directing the animators and doing their very own voiceover. Friday 1st May 2015 at 6pm is the deadline for entries – for more information see here: http://www.itv.com/citv/share-a-story

Cathy says: “Having seen the impressive results from previous years, the standard of work submitted by entrants and what a fantastic opportunity the winners get to see their story made into film, I am delighted to be part of the process this year. It’s going to be a great day.”
