This year we celebrate Mental Health Week between 5 and 11 October and the much-loved annual art competition is back after a year’s hiatus.
The competition is open to all past and present consumers, families, carers and Mental Health Program employees and we invite you to submit up to two pieces of art for this year’s competition.
The voting categories are:
• Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander
• Culturally Diverse
• Drug and Alcohol Services
• Dual Disability
The work that receives the most votes in each category will be bought by the Mental Health Program for $300, and displayed across Monash Health.
There will be two encouragement awards, for art selected by the Mental Health Complaints Commissioner and the Mental Health Program and purchased for $300 each.
A viewer’s choice award will be presented for the piece of art with the most votes in total, which will receive an additional $300.
If the thought of the competition has your creative juices flowing, please click here to apply or head to the Consumer and Family/Carer intranet here. Entries close Friday 25 September 2020.
For further information, contact Louise Probert on 9554 9233 or firstname.lastname@example.org
