Hannah Frank Competition

A year ago I remarked the passing of Scottish artist Hannah Frank (CLICK). Note: the bugs I commented on in that post have been fixed. The website devoted to her memory has now launched the Hannah Frank Art Poetry Competition, closing date 31 March 2010. The poem must be no more than 40 lines in Scots or English and must be based on one of Hannah's black and white drawings, such as the one shown: Flight. The competition is organised by poet William Bonar, on behalf of Hannah Frank's family, and will be judged by David Kinloch. Prizes - £200 for the winning adult and £100 for the winning 18 or under - will be presented on Hannah's birthday 23 August 2010. Entry costs £3.00 per poem for adults and is free for 18 and unders. Schools are also invited to take part. Click the title link for a gallery of Hannah's art.
