Mellten Competition - 16 January 2018

Why not use your imagination to create your own character or comic strip?

As part of the 2018 World Book Day celebrations we are running a competition with Mellten – a quarterly Welsh-language comic for children, bringing together stories, jokes, puzzles and competitions.

The prize for the winning entry will be an original piece of artwork by Mellten creator, Huw Aaron and a Family Ticket to Hay Festival 2018. The strip will also feature in the next issue of the comic! There is also a prize available for the winning school – a workshop with Huw Aaron himself.

The competition is open to all and you can choose to complete the Capten Clonc cartoon strip below or create a totally new character or cartoon.

Closing date: 31 March 2018

Send your work to or through the post to – "Mellten Competition" , Welsh Books Council, Castell Brychan, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, SY23 2JB.

You can download and print the Capten Clonc strip here or visit Mellten HQ.
