Celebrate the winter festival and join the 2Dathon – our on-line drawing competition and a chance to win some calennig. The activity will take place wherever you happen to be and you’ll be able to participate through social media. The 2Dathon will be held on-line, following the Adfent AmGen, from Boxing Day to the first week of the New Year. The task will be to respond within 48 hours in two dimensions to five different themes. There will be a prize of £50 to the winner of each challenge along with £50 at the end of the competition for the best collection of drawings.
Gwenllian Beynon (University of Wales Trinity St David) and Aled Wyn Davies (Welsh School of Architecture) will set the themes and judge the drawings.
The first theme will be announced on Y Lle Celf’s Twitter and Instagram accounts at 19:00 on Boxing Day. The next being disclosed at 19:00 two days later and so on.
You will be required to submit your drawing on Twitter, tagging @yllecelf_eng or Instagram tagging @yllecelf and using the hashtag #2Dathon by the deadline of 19:00 two days following the announcement of the theme.
The names of the winners will be disclosed on Y Lle Celf social media three days following the announcement of the theme.
And remember, here ‘drawing’ will be considered in the broadest sense of the term.
So, celebrate the winter festival and go for it.
