Create! Art for Autism 2014 is celebrating its fourth year of success. The competition is open to all young people aged 11-25 years who are formally diagnosed with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) including Asperger’s Syndrome. Create! aims to dispel the myth that people with autism cannot be creative and to show that art can significantly improve their quality of life, facilitating experiential-based learning and instilling life-long skills.
Young people with an ASC are invited to enter the five main categories: 2D Art, 3D Art, Digital Photography, Digital Animation and Poetry. Finalists of the competition will be invited to attend a high profile awards ceremony in Cardiff, on Friday 18th July, to celebrate the creativity of the contestants, where the final winners of each category will be announced. The finalists’ artwork will then be displayed on the Create! Art for Autism website and form part of the launch celebrations for the Competition in 2015. Finalists will then be announced on July 2nd and the awards ceremony will take place on July 18th.
In addition to these categories, there is also a ‘People’s Choice Award’. See http://www.createartforautism.com/peoples-choice-award-2014/ for a list of finalists and entries, and place your vote before the 1st of July.
