Art Competition – ‘Me and my brain’

art competition


Win up to €500!

Adult and kids categories

Following EFNA’s successful #BrainLifeGoals photography competition earlier this year, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new art competition!

Create a drawing, painting, collage or digital illustration that represents your relationship with your brain. Your work might explore your hopes, your frustrations, or the day to day impact a neurological disorder has on your life.

The winner will be awarded €500 and four runners up (honourable mentions) will each be awarded a €125 prize.

Entries will be judged on both artistic merit and how well the artwork reflects the theme. Descriptions of the entries will be taken into consideration by our judges.
Work should be submitted digitally (using scan or photograph) in .jpg format. Full competition rules are available below.

The deadline for entry  is Monday, 7 December 2020. Winners will be announced in mid-January 2021.

Kids under 12 can enter our separate colouring competition. Winner of the kids’ category will receive an awesome ‘brain pack’, with a plush toy, badge, keyring and stickers. Four runners up will each receive a badge, keyring and stickers.
