Emp-Art Competition

Empowering the community with freedom of expression through art

The Emp-Art Competition | Open for entries

The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the value of creativity. We are inviting individuals, groups or families to participate by creating a named piece of art work, which will be showcased at a local venue on the Friday 31st August 2018. The art work will be judged locally with prizes awarded. The deadline for submitting your art work is Wednesday 29th August 2018.

The art work can be in any form, some ideas are;

  • Painting, Photography, Portrait, Digital, 3D, Mosaic
  • Sculpture, Wood Art Work, Metal Art Work
  • Audio / Video / Slideshow (projector facilities)

    • Art can connect memories and emotions with aspects of the material used to construct. If you have a story to tell, Art can be a powerful key to telling your story.

      Judging and Prizes

      The judging of the Art Work will take place at the end of the day, Entries will be prejudged and then finalists will be chosen by a panel of three from the Art and Mental Health field. The prize winners will be notified by either phone or email.
