Special Jane Austen Competition for Aspiring Artists
The Jane Austen Centre in Bath is running a special competition between 27th March and 9th April 2016, which is an ideal way for aspiring artists and Jane Austen fans to pass the time this Easter, with some great prizes on offer too.
In order to enter the competition all you need to do is get your best pencils, crayons or felt tips out and colour in an entry form in the most creative way possible ensuring that a Jane Austen theme is adhered to. You can base your design on anything relating to Jane Austen and her works, regardless of whether it is the author herself, one of her novels or perhaps one of her characters. The idea is to let your imagination run wild in honour of the great lady this Easter.
Entry forms can be collected from the gift shop in Bath’s Jane Austen Centre or alternatively downloaded online from the Jane Austen Centre website if you are unable to get to the city itself. Completed entry forms must be returned either to the centre itself or with a photo of the completed work submitted via email by midnight on the 9th April 2016.
There are two categories within this competition, with one specifically for under 12s and a separate category for all other entrants. The prize on offer is a selection of goodies from the Jane Austen Centre for the winner of both categories. A great Easter treat for any ardent fans of the fabulous author!
The Jane Austen Centre is one of Bath’s premier attractions, located at 40 Gay Street in the centre of the city. The museum is based in a Georgian townhouse and tells the story of Jane Austen’s two long visits to the city in 1801 and 1806. It contains many of her personal effects and even a waxwork of the great author, which has been created in partnership with a trained FBI forensic artist.
So Darwinites, go ahead and make us proud by spending your time wisely this Easter and entering this fantastic competition.
