Greg will judge all entries personally and the top ten will be sent to the public vote via the Daily Echo, closing date 31st May.

Aw a successful artist, Greg says; “My earliest memory is of drawing and art has remained a constant source of pleasure and solace throughout my life. Even now going through chemotherapy, it is proving to be a great comfort and helps me to articulate many complex and overwhelming emotions”
