CALLING all young readers.

We are giving 10 lucky Standard readers the chance to win a copy of the brand new children's book The Queen’s Hat, worth £11.99 and signed exclusively for us by local author and illustrator Steve Antony.

To enter, simply send us a photograph of yourself wearing a hat, any hat – in fact the sillier the better. 

The competition is open to individuals, siblings and even groups, so if you want to try and win a copy for your school library, get your whole class wearing hats.

The photographs will then be put into an online gallery here on the Wilts & Gloucestershire Standard website, and Steve will help us pick the winners.




Email your entry to us at

Please include your name, age and town/village/school.

Prizes will be available for the winners to collect from our offices in Dyer Street, Cirencester.

Deadline for entries is 4pm on Friday, May 16.
