Q: What is ChildhoodWeek?
A: Childhoodweek is an event created by Beatrice Blue back in 2017. The idea is to bring up nice old memories and then turn them into stories to share.
It's all about sharing, enjoying and taking a little time for ourselves. It only lasts 7 days, which means no stress, just fun.
The event is always an incredible chance to discover amazing and talented artists, and their wonderful childhood stories.
The main goal is to trigger our memories and to show each other our childhoods with either paintings, photographs or anything fun!
There´s an official list of prompts you can follow for the general topics of each day of the event if you want, HERE is a link to the NEW one.
HERE is a link to the past ones.

Looking forward to seeing what you do this upcoming edition!
Q: When is Childhoodweek?
A: Childhood Week is a 2 week event distributed in 2 separate weeks along the year: One for Summer, one for Winter.
They both start on the first Sunday of both July and December and last for 7 days.
Q: Can I participate?
A: YES! Everyone can! That's the best part of it, and the main goal too! The more we are, the more stories we enjoy!
Q: What if I'm not good enough?
A: Everyone is good enough. Again, this event is all about enjoying and taking some little time for ourselves. It's all about sharing and finding inspiration in each other's stories. No matter the format, media or anything else but HAVING FUN. <3
Q: Can I work ahead of time?
A: Yes! The prompt list will usually be released almost a month earlier than the event so that we can all cheat and relax on the process. NO STRESS! Just fun :) It's all about enjoying.
Q: Is there a deadline?
A: Nope! Please take your time and enjoy! Most people will try and make it on that week but it's alright if you can't! Again, this event is all about taking some time for ourselves and enjoying. No pressure, no deadlines. Just fun :)
Sometimes we have partners joining and they'll do giveaways or challenges. In that case there will be a deadline but always only for that particular challenge/giveaway. Childhood Week never has a deadline.
Q: Where does ChildhoodWeek take place?
A: Any social media platform is perfect to share your story. However the most amazing place where it takes place is your house and your family while searching for the stories!
Q: Does the winter edition have to do with Christmas?
A: Nope. It's the Winter edition. Everybody had different sort of winters with different sorts of holidays! So it's about showing that.
Q: Can I have my own prompt list?
A: Of course! The official prompt list is just a bit of magic to start, but if you have a cool idea you want to show and tell, go for it!
Q: Do I have to do the prompts in order?
A: Nope, again just have fun and enjoy as you'd like the most!
Q: Do I have to use my own designs or can I use designs from my favorite game/film/cartoon etc.?
A: You can use-draw-share whatever you’d like for your Childhood Week . Just remember to follow copyright laws, and respect the original creator's wishes.
Q: If I decide to do illustrations, do they have to be full color?
A: You can do whatever you're most comfortable with! Remember, it's all about taking a little moment to enjoy.
