Artist competition

We are launching a competition inviting local artists to submit a proposal/idea for a piece of artwork for our new offices. The piece, which can be fine art, photography, illustration or mixed media, needs to embody the Hospice values of care, support, respect, community and inclusiveness. The artwork must be:

• 1m²
• Able to be mounted vertically on the wall
• No heavier than 10kg
• No deeper than 10cm
• Two-dimensional
• Able to be dusted!

All entries will be judged by a panel of patients, staff and volunteers, with the winning idea being made and displayed in the new offices in Phoenix Square, Wyncolls Road for our non-clinical staff.

Entries must be submitted by 11th August either by email (no bigger than 10MB) to [email protected] or by post (no bigger than A3) to Marketing team, St Helena Hospice, Fundraising Office, Angora Business Park, Peartree Road, Colchester, CO3 3DG.

If you have any questions, please feel free to respond to this post. Many thanks. 



  • Please note that the panel of judges will choose a winner based on the proposals submitted. The winner will then be asked to create the final piece of art.
