BFBS Launches ‘Forces Voices’ Creativity Competition

Use your isolation inspirations to bag £500 worth of Amazon vouchers

BFBS launches ‘Forces Voices’ creativity competition to get families to share their ‘stay home’ creative masterpieces and be in with the chance of winning £500 worth of Amazon vouchers.

During this difficult time, we know that many of you are getting creative at home to keep your spirits up or children entertained - but you may feel that all your hard efforts are going to waste as these masterpieces are stored in a box or on your hard drive. 

At BFBS we want to encourage people to share their lockdown creations through ‘Forces Voices’, a creativity competition that allows adults and children to either get creative from scratch or present pieces they’ve already made and want to share with the world. 

The Competition   

You can enter as an adult or encourage your child to put forward their own masterpiece, as there will be a £500 Amazon voucher for the best child and adult submission in each category. 

Each piece will be judged by an expert in one of the following eight categories: 

  • Written word / Audio (Adult)  

  • Written word / Audio (Child)  

  • Video (Adult) 

  • Video (Child) 

  • Arts and Crafts (Adult) 

  • Arts and Crafts (Child) 

  • Photography (Adult) 

  • Photography (Child)  

Finding Fame  

If the prospect of winning £500 to spend on Amazon isn’t enough, we want to celebrate your isolation inspirations even further by showcasing all the entries on forces.net for you to look at and enjoy.
