What is it?

Throughout his adult life, Denis kept meticulous notebooks, filled with sketches of buildings, family activities, holidays, cartoons, and stories for his four children, all in his very distinctive style.

A prize fund of £2000 is available to be awarded at the Judges' discretion. 


All entries are to be submitted by 5pm on Thursday 12th October 2023. Winners will be announced and presented at the WYSA Awards on Thursday 19th October 2023.
