This information is dated 8th June 2020 and will be updated as new information is received by District from Rotary GB&I
At the last meeting of the Rotary GB&I Governing Council, it was decided to update the ‘face to face’ information packs, and these, along with all other competition information packs and consent forms, are with the RIBI Secretariat. It is hoped that they will soon be on the Rotary GB&I website. The packs will be downloaded as soon as practicable on to the District 1010 website.
The closing date for the national finals of Young Writer, Young Photographer, Young Artist, Young Film maker and Young Environmentalist is Monday 29th March 2021. All entries must be received by the Rotary GB&I Secretariat by that date.
Entries for the National Final should be submitted electronically, with the exception of Young Artist and 3D models comprising part of a Young Environmentalist entry. Details of how to submit electronically are included in the information packs.
The themes are:
1. Rotary Young Artist: Wild Nature
2. Rotary Young Photographer: Wild Nature
3. Rotary Young Film maker: Challenge
