Whether you’ve joined our Hydrocephalus Canada Community many years ago or recently, you deserve to be proud of the community and the numerous positive effects it has had on its members. This Art Contest is dedicated in honour of Lorna Wreford whom I first met in 1979. She became a very successful and prolific artist who contributed immensely to the community, including donating art for fund-raising calendars. All current members are invited to use their imaginations to create their own unique image that will celebrate the golden anniversary of HC.
To help you get started on this competition, here are some suggestions that will increase your chances of success and feeling good about what you create.
• Be sure your art fits into the THEME of the anniversary.
• Think of how you can make your art unique, something that is original and helps us understand and appreciate YOU.
• From time to time, try to self-evaluate your art by being your own judge. (Of course, you’ll have to read the judges’ criteria below.)
I wish you all the best as you let your creative ideas flow.
This contest is open to individuals from our SBH Community, their family members and caregivers to submit their traditional and non traditional artwork. Art pieces can include paintings, drawings and photographs . This contest aims to encourage everyone in our community to use their creativity to shine a light on the millions of stories that exist in our Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida Community and to discover and reward outstanding artistic abilities.
This year HC will be awarding the top 3 artists voted on by the SBH community with cash prizes.
