Belper & Duffield Rotary is committed to offering young people a wide range of opportunities to unlock their potential, develop their skills and broaden their horizons. Whatever your particular artistic interests are, we are sure our
You-Create reel exhibition and competition will have something for you.


The theme for entries is “The Natural World”.   The interpretation of this theme is very much down to the individual entrant’s imagination.   Full details of the rules for each category can be found below and on the website.


There are three age groups for each category.  They are:-

                        Junior                           Up to and including 10 years old

                        Intermediate               11 years to 13 years

                        Senior                           14 years to 17 years.

The aim of the competition is to encourage young people to use their writing skills and to write with imagination and creativity.   For entrants with motor control difficulties an amanuensis may be used to record the entrant’s work to paper.


Entrants should submit one piece of original work, either fiction or non-fiction, prose or poetry, related to the given theme.    The entry should be up to a maximum of 550 words for prose, or a maximum of 40 lines for poetry.   There should be no drawings or pictures forming a part of the entry.   All entries must be clearly legible but may be either hand written or typed.
