We love original content!

Unuhi is a new bilingual books app for children. Launched in late 2018, the app offers short stories and flashcards for children aged 2 -10 years. Twenty languages are supported and the app displays any two of these on screen at the same time in a child friendly bilingual eBook format. Native audio narration is currently available in English, Spanish, French and German.

At Unuhi we love original content and we are always looking for a new story to add to the app for the world to enjoy.

Judging the winning entry

Entries will be reviewed by our panel of judges who will select the winning story based on creativity, plot, originality, enjoyment and how well the story lends itself to illustration and translation.

Entry Form

The story must be between 10 and 15 pages long with a maximum of 15 words per page when translated into English. It can be submitted in any language but must be accompanied with an English translation. The teacher may correct spelling and grammar but we ask that the core story and ideas come from the children; the age of the children will be taken into consideration.

To enter, simply fill out the form below (before June 7th, 2019) and attach your story as a PDF file with an English translation. One entry per author.
