Well it's that time of year again, time to get out your butterfly designs or maybe create a new one just for the occasion. World Lupus Day is held on May 10th and for the last two years I have organised a Butterfly Showcase here on my blog and Pinterest to commemorate this occasion and build awareness of the disease. My aim is to create a gallery of butterfly designs to mark the day so it will be colourful and joyful even if we are celebrating a life threatening disease like Lupus.

You can participate by sending me a sketch, illustration, painting, pattern, collage or basically anything that you have personally created using butterflies as a theme. There will be two different showcases, one for children up to 16 years old, and one for all the rest. The final artwork should be square if not it may need to be cropped.
Send me a 600 x 600 pixel jpg, 72dpi and rgb, of your final design.
Name your file, BFL_yourname.jpg (for example, BFL_dawnclarkson.jpg). Children's drawings, BFL_child'sname_age.jpg (for example, BFL_dawnclarkson_10.jpg). Please do not give a title to your piece.
You will be allowed ONE link to a blog or website.
The order of the showcase will be as I receive the files.
There will be a series of blog posts featuring the designs received in batches. On May 10th I will launch a board on Pinterest which will include all the designs.
The deadline is Wednesday 6th May so I can prepare the images and promote the event.
Please send your designs to firstname.lastname@example.org
