All best entries will be displayed on our website, with the top 3 runners up getting a unique handcrafted BeAnimal T-shirt.



What have I got to do?

Choose from 1 of these 3 options, and write a response 500 - 1000 words in length:




  1. Narrate an account of an experience in your life that brought you closer to nature. 

    (OR)

  2. Write a short piece on your ideal utopia and some of the things you would find there.

    (OR)

  3. Write an informational piece on something that we could all adopt to live a happier, healthier life - whether it’s an ideology, dietary improvements or physical activity!



(All writing can be accompanied by photos, drawings, or even a short video.)





Any tips?

  1. Be Positive! - We at BeAnimal think that the best things spring out of positivity. So more points for optimism and making us smile, than tales of doom and gloom! 

  2. Think Alternative! - That being said, we’re all for unsettling the status quo. Bonus credits for people really thinking outside the box, and not scared to ruffle a few feathers!
