A Lincolnshire-based learning disability charity has launched its second annual art and photography competition.

With sales of its special 2016 calendar going well, Linkage wants to uncover more talented individuals from across the area – with 12 winning designs set to feature in its 2017 calendar.

Organiser Tony Barker said:“The first year of the competition went really well and uncovered some amazing talent and creativity, with the winners receiving prize money totalling more than £1,000.

“We want more people to share in Linkage ArtBeat, so are keen to welcome entries from everyone.”

The competition will coincide with Linkage’s 40th anniversary in 2016.

Possible themes include birthdays or anniversaries but, as with this year, entries are welcome on any subject.
