News News Environment Art Competition Using the theme “Save Your Earth (personal responsibility)” this competition invites you to use your creativity to design an art poster. As well as £100 for the winner, and £25 for two runners-up, the work will be shared on this website, our social media channels, and in the “SNU Today” magazine. The winning design will be printed and sent to every SNU Church to display, and inspire Spiritualists throughout our network. HOW TO ENTER No previous drawing experience is needed, and matchstick drawing artists are welcome! What matters is getting your message across. Get collaborative and involve friends and family - as long as you do the drawing, and it’s an original piece. Start by doing your own research on climate change and the environment to inspire the visual representation of your message. Discussing your plans with others is a great way of raising awareness at the same time, letting them hear the message to "Save Your Earth!" Your work could show the benefit of planting trees, recycling, or reducing pollution. It could promote actions that others can take to halt or reverse climate change. These are just a few ideas - just choose an area that you feel passionate about. We want your work to inspire others to take action to protect our earth. Watch this short video for some more ideas...
