Hello to all creative types,
I've already posted this in the 'Get Involved' section of the forum, but didn't want anyone to miss out on this year's competition.
We’d like to remind you that we are accepting entries for the 2013 Mervyn Peake Awards.
The closing date for receiving entries is 29th March - only 6 weeks away!
Last year we received over 400 entries, many of which came from forum users, and we’d love for this to be even higher in 2013.
The awards are an opportunity for anyone with Parkinson’s, of any level of artistic ability, to share their creative passion.
There are 3 categories to enter – art, photography and poetry – and you can enter each of these once. The awards are judged by the son and daughter of Mervyn Peake, in memory of their father, and they award a prize to the winner of each category.
We’ll also invite all entrants to our awards reception in London in July 2013, where there will be a chance to see all the winning work and meet other creative individuals.
You can find out more about the awards here: http://www.parkinsons.org.uk/mervynpeake
If you have any other questions about entering, the Events team will be happy to help on email@example.com
