In this morning’s post, I received notificationof the Mervyn Peake Awards 2012, and an invitation to enter. (This was because I submitted an entry last year.) The relevant page on Parkinson’s UK’s Web site hasn’t been updated yet, but I’m sure it will be soon.

Edit: That page is updated now!

The Mervyn Peake Awards celebrate the creativity of people with Parkinson’s, and commemorate the life of Mervyn Peake, himself an artist and a writer who had Parkinson’s. The awards are judged and supported by Peake’s family.


There are four categories:

  • Art
  • Poetry
  • Photography
  • Digital Art

The closing date is 12th March 2011.

  2. Yes. I’ve got a painting lined up… and maybe a poem, which I scribbled down for something else, but the deadline passed while I was refining it!

  3. Parkinson’s UK have updated their Web site now.

    Here be the link (again):
