Bite the Ballot’s national creativity challenge is offering 14-24 year olds across the UK the opportunity to have their artwork or photography exhibited on ‘What it means to me to be in Britain in 2012’ in the Houses of Parliament, in one of the best locations on the estate, this autumn.
We have divided the UK into 14 regions and 3 winners will be selected from each.
The public selects the winners, (up to 2 votes each) one on Facebook and one on Twitter. Our guest judges, award winning Royal portrait artist and British photographer Rama Knight will also be selecting some of their favorites from each region.
Design a piece of artwork or submit a photograph portraying ‘What it means to me to be in Britain in 2012’ This is open for you to demonstrate what it is about 2012 that inspires you, whether it’s the Diamond Jubilee, The Olympic and Paralympic games, your local community, a famous landmark or your own idea.
- This can be any form of design on a 2D canvas (paint, pastels, pencil, collage or a photograph)
- Sizes from A4 – A1
- Upload a digital copy of your work via the Bite the Ballot website by 6pm, 15th August 2012
- Public voting for one week 16 August – 23 August 2012
- Winners Announced 6 September 2012
Help us redecorate your parliament, your way!
