Advocacy Through the Arts

The theme of this competition is Advocacy Through The Arts: Bringing Change Through Expression. We’d like you to show us in words or pictures what change means to you. 

We have had to make a few changes to our poetry and photography competition, which will now be held every two years. Please also note that there will be no printed publication. All entrants will be published on this website.
