Have a go!

It would be great to see some of our North East Creative Corner forum members taking part, I know some of you have in the past but for those who haven't, go on, give it a go!

If you are a past entrant, why not share your experiences of taking part in the Mervyn Peake awards on our Forum - you might just give someone else the confidence to have a go.
