Self-advocates: Submit your original artwork for the 2012 Mosaic Art Contest! In conjunction with the 2012 Wisconsin Self-Determination Conference, the theme of the art contest is "The Art of Self-Determination." This is an art contest for self-advocates, 18 years and older, who live in Wisconsin and want to express what self-determination and/or self-advocacy means to them through their art. The art contest is sponsored by the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD).

The BPDD will accept artwork in three categories: 2D visual art, photography, and poetry. Each category can have up to three award winners. The top prize in each category is a New iPad! All submitted artwork will be featured on the BPDD’s website and all participants will receive a certificate of participation.

You can find more information about the art contest on the BPDD’s website, including: categories and specifications, rules, and awards, recognition and prizes. Also, the website has information about how to submit your artwork, including the entry form. The deadline to submit artwork is 12 p.m. on Friday, September 14, 2012.

All entries must be original artwork created by the person submitting the artwork. A self-advocate is an individual with a disability who is eligible for - or using - long-term care supports. Only entries from self-advocates living in Wisconsin will be accepted.

If you have any questions, or need assistance with submitting your artwork, contact Joshua Ryf at joshua.ryf@wisconsin.gov or (608) 261-7829.
