Student Anthology Competition

UPDATE: Closing date for entries is now 8th August and students may send their entries in directly.

Your world, your future... collaborate to create an anthology about your planet. A perfect, creative and self-directed end of year activity for all year groups - students unite for the protection of the natural world!

Enter Planetary’s exclusive competition in partnership with the UK Schools Sustainability Network (“UKSSN”), supported by Global Action Plan, PPL PWRLet’s Go Zero , Transform Our World and The National Education Union.



We are inviting budding poets,  artists and photographers to submit their most engaging and creative work for publication in a new student-led collaborative anthology to give a voice to eco-conscious youth. The anthology, ‘Words and Pictures for Your World’, will be based around five categories aligning with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (the ‘SDGs’), and will be launched later this year to coincide with and celebrate COP26 – the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow in November.

We are looking for words and pictures that we can link together in the anthology. The pictures can take the form of traditonal art or own relevant photography to create an extraordinary collection of the written word and visual imagery by students, for the planet. Inspiration for entries can be found on our Learn and Solutions web pages, and download our handy poster from the resources below to spread the word!

Independent UKSSN panels will review all valid entries submitted by schools to create three shortlists per year group, one for poetry, one for traditional art (paintings, drawings, sketches etc.) and one for photography. The winning submissions for publication in the anthology will be decided by a voting poll on the Planetary website later in the year.
