UK - The deadline for entries to this year's Art of Pensions competition - run by Pendragon and supported by GP's sister title Professional Pensions - is approaching.
The annual competition - now in its seventh year - attracts entries ranging across the entire spectrum of artistic expression; from illustration and cartoons to fine drawings, sketches and doodles.
Entry cards have already been sent out but they can also be requested at www.artofpensions.com, where full competition rules are available.
Entrants will be provided with two blank postcards on which they can complete their submissions, and a return envelope.
As in previous years there will be awards in five categories: overall winner, most original, most humorous, most thought-provoking and a Pendragon Award.
Winners in each category will receive a trophy and be invited to the Awards Lunch. All entries must be anonymous to ensure judging impartiality.
The best entries will be showcased in PP and also at the Professional Pensions show, which takes place on November 18 and 19 at London's Excel Centre.
Deadline for submissions is October 31 and voting for this year's winners will take place online and at the Professional Pensions show at Excel in London.
Pendragon managing director Simon Freeman said: "The competition appears to evoke the spirit of creativity that exists within the UK pensions sector and we confidently expect this year's competition to be bigger and better than ever.
"Entrants can submit any subject matter they want - the only limitation is that it fits into one of the competition's A6 postcard frames and, of course, that it relates to pensions."
