My Experience of entering Koestler Awards

This is the second year that I have submitted entries for the Koestler Awards. The Koestler Awards are a nationwide competition for various art categories from inmates in prisons or patients held in secure hospitals. There are about nine thousand entries every year, with some of the entries being exhibited in galleries around the country. Last year I won £20 for my entries but this year my entries have netted me £140. My art categories were digital photographs edited by Adobe Photoshop software,but there are many different categories.
