WAU Art Contest – 1st Edition – 2015

During the years we at WAU have taken pride in our original publications, art and material. Although the WAU sisters work hard to bring to you the very best, we could not have achieved this without the help of our many supporters, POWs and friends, who have always provided us with material, either art or texts.

We decided that this year, to show you our gratitude, that we would hold an art contest to chose the best art work to be used in our many publications and sites. We will be awarding prizes to the best art as a way to give back and show out appreciation towards all those who help us make achieve what we had over the last 25 years.

The contest is divided in 2 categories:

Children (up to 14 years old)
It’s up to your children to chose a subject, either heathen, historical, nature etc Let them be creative.

David Lane’s Memorial (open to everybody)
The subject of this category is David Lane and his work. This can either be a portrait, the 14 words, something based on his writings etc.

These artworks will be featured in a booklet compilation of David Lane’s work from his site davidlane1488.com . This booklet will be available for free download.
