To celebrate International Epilepsy Day 2020, we held an international art competition, for all ages, with the theme ‘Friendship and Inclusion’.

There were three categories – under 8 years of age (age as of 31st December 2019); between 8 years and 15 years of age (ages as of 31st December 2019) and 16 years of age and older (age as of on 31st December 2019). The competition was open to everyone!

Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who took part in the competition this year.
The judges had a difficult job as there were so many wonderful entries. Epilepsy has truly been put in the picture through the participants’ creative talents. These artworks tell of the personal experience of epilepsy through visual language, allowing the viewer the gain a greater insight to both the artist’s world and the condition.
