Our 2022 art competition is now open for submissions - and it's free to enter! We invite you to delve into the world of your dreams and visions for our exciting new Inspiration from Dreams & Visions art competition. 

Does your meditation or psychic practice evoke visions of symbolic colours and shapes that can be transformed into art that is imbued with a powerful message? Perhaps you keep a dream journal and can think of a creative way to give it a visual form. Or you might use your daydreams, night dreams or even lucid dreams to unleash those artistic energies... 

We all dream and we can all be creative so we hope you take up this opportunity to become the dreamers and visionaries that we know you are. We can't wait for you to share some of those dreams and visions with us in our 2022 art competition.

Closing date for submissions: midnight on 11th November 2022
