4. Share it

Top Tips

  • Why not consider using techniques to build texture on the template? – this will add an sensory element for blind and visually impaired people to experience.
  • Some art galleries use audio description to describe an image – why not try writing  a small script with your art work that we can read to the judges with your entry?
  • Sight loss conditions affect different aspects of a persons sight. For some people, colour and contrast can be used to help identify key features – why not try using bold and contrasting colours, like yellow and blue?

Win 

There are prizes up for grabs in 4 age categories. The judging panel will include visually impaired staff and volunteers, with the winners announced on 17th December live on our Facebook page!

Age Categories: 4 and under, 5-7, 8-11, 12+. Be sure to complete your child’s age on the entry form and send it in with their entry.

We hope you have lots of fun when creating your competition entries.
