Cancer Council Arts Awards 10th anniversary: Call for entries

Monday 29 January, 2007

The Cancer Council Victoria's Arts Awards (formerly known as Daffodil Day Arts Awards) is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and invites Victorian residents to play a key role in this special exhibition by submitting stories, poems, films or artworks by Friday 6 April 2007.

By sharing their cancer experiences through creative expression, entrants can remember loved ones lost, help others understand the cancer experience and provide a sense of hope for people currently facing cancer.

The Cancer Council Victoria's Deb Stringer says that the awards give insight into the many ways cancer affects the Victorian community. "While most Victorian lives will be touched by cancer at some point, no two cancer journeys are the same," she said. "This year's theme - Revelation - allows us to examine some of these unique and touching stories."

As well as offering participants the opportunity to express their cancer stories, The Cancer Council Victoria Arts Awards gives entrants the chance to win cash prizes and to share their works with the public. Following the judging, selected works will be displayed in The Cancer Council Victoria Arts Awards Exhibition, which will begin in Melbourne and then tour regional Victoria.

Entries are open to all ages, and to both amateurs and professionals. Anyone with a cancer experience, direct or indirect, may enter the competition.
