Subject: King Lear Prizes 

Dear Lostwithiel  Area u3a, 

I’m writing to you from the King Lear Prizes, the national creative arts competition for older people during the COVID-19 pandemic. I wanted to inform you about the latest round of the competition, which has just opened to entries, and is running from January to March 2021.

Your u3a members may be interested in hearing about the competition, which is specifically for amateurs and beginners who are over the age of 65. 

The competition accepts entries in poetry, real stories (short stories from people’s lives), art and musical performance, and there are over £2,000 of prizes on offer. The winners will be picked by our panel of expert judges including Gyles Brandreth and Julian Lloyd Webber.

For more info and how to enter, please take a look at our website: www.kinglearprizes.org.uk

If you think some of your members might be interested in taking part, please do share this information with them. It’s a great creative project for people to get stuck into particularly during this lockdown, and it’s an opportunity for your members to improve their creative skills.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Very best wishes

Chris Bland
General Manager  King Lear Prizes
