mental health awarness contest 2013-07-27 19:26:06
The rules are that its has to be art related to mental health. it could be about any mental health disorder. I just ask that it doesnt glorify things such as cutting or suicide. You can use any medium you like be it photography or digital art. Im looking for something that brings awareness to mental illness and also breaks the stigma that surrounds the topic.
Why this idea? I suffer from panic disorder and have manic personality traits. In the beginning I was ashamed of myself but then I eventually realized it was something to not be ashamed of. many people go through this and sadly suffer alone. the deadline...will be november 15th in memory of my dear cousin derek. winner will have a choice of prize: an art print or a donation to a mental health charity of his/her choice in there name. I hope you will enter this contest :)
