Following the success of our winter competition we are now running one every 6 months. Here are the details of how to enter our summer 2017 competition. The theme this time is “Coins” – something to get your head around! The deadline for your entry is 30 September.

There was a great reaction to our first competition – both in terms of the entries received and also the comments from readers about the winning works. Clearly the competition tapped into a rich vein of creativity, and we think there’s even better to come.

So, as it’s free to enter and competitive prize money available why not give it a go? You’ve got the whole summer to get your thoughts “onto paper” – just make sure we receive your entry by 30th September. Good luck!
