June 18th is Autistic Pride Day, and I am going to hold a contest in it’s honor. To enter the contest, you must submit a story, writing or artwork that you yourself worked on. You also must be a person on the autism spectrum.
This is a good chance for any of you out there on the Autism Spectrum to get noticed about your art and/or writing. For writing, it can be a poem, prose, or a section of your fiction you’d like to sample. For Artwork, you can please scan the art in to the computer and email me whatever you want sampled from your work.
If you are submitting a work of writing, make sure it is a poem, prose or a selection of your writing. If you plan to submit artwork, send the image. Be sure to include your name and contact information!
The purpose of this contest is to showcase people on the Autistic Spectrum who do not usually get to have their work displayed.
To enter the contest, please email your work to email@example.com The deadline for submission will be Friday June 11th 2010, at 11:59pm. Please submit only 2 works per person and i will choose what i think is the best bunch and will post them on my site for many people to see!
Thanks for all of your continued support and it makes me happy that I have a chance to help others on the Spectrum.
I just happened to surf pass a show on GPB and there was a section featuring you so I looked up your blog and came by to say hello. Fabulous work on the blog and it was cool learning a little about you and your job.
Hi Jason, I saw this video on yahoo yesterday. It’s a graduation speech and the young man giving it is autistic. It was a great speech and, if you haven’t seen it already, it’s worth the watch.
LOVE this idea & will re-tweet it. My son was just diagnosed with Asperger. Do you think Lego sculptures would count? (www.starkravingmadmommy.com)
Love this!! I’m going to tweet about it. @elislids
I never knew there was autistic pride day 🙂
What about an original song in mp3 format?
