Sketching Competition - Big Cash prizes!

Announcing a brand new SKETCHING COMPETITION!! It is absolutely free to enter and open to sketchers in all countries. But the extra brilliant bit is that we have a 1st prize of $1500AUS to give away (yahoooo!) and $500 for the runner-up.

The competition is linked to my sketching-residency at the University of Western Australia. I have been sketching different people's jobs for a few weeks now, so the theme of the competition is also 'capturing work'. We would like you to choose a particular job to sketch. It could be your own job or a friend's. We want you to draw things which show what the work is like, using images and text to tell us what the person feels about the work they do.

I really hope everyone will have a go. It is relevant to all levels, as we are just as interested in how interesting and communicative the 'story' of your sketches is, as we are in the quality of the drawings themselves.

The deadline is April 23rd, so you have a bit of time, but take a look at the details now, so you can be thinking about what you want to draw.

If you need inspiration, take a look at the website for my Work Design residency at UWA, where you can see some of the workplace sketches I have been doing for the project.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you sketch. Please do spread the word. We are really excited to see as many different interpretations from as many sketchers as possible.

Good luck!

Hi Lynne,

I'm on your mailing list and have just been reading your last e-mail.
In the section about the competition, there's a link in the wording -
"but take a look at the details now"

This currently leads to a page-not-found message.
The link itself is correct written as -

but on the actual website, the page title has been spelt wrongly -

should be changed to

Sorry - I will repost the link.

That's odd - it works when I click it. Here it is again though:

Let me know if it is still an issue!

Sorry about that :-)
