Thank you to all of you who submitted an entry to the Children of Lockdown collection. We have been overwhelmed by the quality and thoughtfulness of your submissions and our judges have had an extraordinarily hard time in deciding the winners.

It is a truly amazing collection, with entries from children ranging in age from 3 to 17 from all across the United Kingdom, and even some from Australia. There’s humour, profound sadness, hope, boredom, observation, imagination and everything in between.

All 200 entries are published here and will be archived by the British Library as part of the UK Web Archive.

Together we’ve captured a unique moment in time, which future generations will be able to look back on and explore.

Congratulations to all of the entrants.
