Event Details

Saving the world’ is the basic job description of most superheroes, but who on Earth is going to help ‘save the planet’? Maybe that’s where you come in! As part of the Green Stories Competition, this contest challenges you to create an uplifting short story of superheroes that respond to climate change. Imagine your target audience to be teens and young adults that enjoy watching superhero films.

Drawing on your own experiences of climate change, entries from adults that live /have lived in the following countries are especially welcome (but not essential): India, Pakistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, South Sudan, Mali, Niger, Algeria, Mauritania, Morocco, or Brazil.

Once finished, submit your short story to the superhero category of the Green Stories Competition website.

The winner will receive: £500 prize* (~$600).

A scene from your story turned into a 1 page comic strip, made by a professional artist! (The same artist that made the illustration shown here).
(*Or equivalent in your own currency)

Feel free to add your own illustrations, but this is optional, as the stories are judged on the text.
