Mervyn Peake Awards 2011
For those of you who like to write poetry, we wanted to let you know:
The deadline for the Mervyn Peake Awards has been extended to Wednesday 13 April (originally 31 March).
The Mervyn Peake Awards is a celebration of the creativity of people with Parkinson’s. The aim is to encourage creativity in memory of the late Mervyn Peake, the illustrator of Alice in Wonderland books and author of Gormenghast, who had Parkinson's.
2011 marks a special year for the Meryvn Peake Awards. Not only is it the tenth year of the awards but it is also the centenary of Mervyn Peake’s birth, so it's a great time to enter your work.
There are four categories –
A cash prize for the winner of each category is offered by the sons and daughter of Mervyn Peake.
You can find out about the awards and how to enter by visiting www.parkinsons.org.uk/mervynpeake or calling 020 7963 9309. It is a great opportunity to celebrate the creativity of people who have Parkinson’s.
All work will also be entered into the People’s Choice Award*. A winner from each UK region will be selected in a public vote, with their work appearing in our 2012 calendar.
Regardless of your level of experience, we hope you’ll get involved - all entries are welcome!
