People with Epilepsy Encouraged to Submit Artwork as Part of National Expressions of Courage(R) Art Contest
Date:3/31/2008

Contest Celebrates Talents and Strengths of Those Living with Epilepsy

TITUSVILLE, N.J., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Art is an essential part of the human experience. It has the ability to relay our deepest feelings with mere flicks of a paintbrush, or through simple pencil strokes. For people with epilepsy, art can be a valuable way to communicate their innermost thoughts of living with this serious neurological condition.

The sixth annual Expressions of Courage(R) national art contest, sponsored by ORTHO-McNEIL NEUROLOGICS(R), Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc, in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation, provides people with epilepsy the opportunity to showcase their talents and their perspectives of the world around them through art. In addition, the contest helps raise awareness of epilepsy and eliminate the stigma often associated with the condition -- as epilepsy does not define who people are, it is simply a condition they live with.

The contest kicked off at the National Walk for Epilepsy on March 29 in Washington, D.C., and is open through July 16, 2008, to all Americans diagnosed with epilepsy. A panel of epilepsy advocates and art industry representatives will serve as contest judges and will announce the winning artwork in September. Winning entries will be selected based on creativity and the ability to demonstrate feelings of living with epilepsy through art.

"By participating in the Expressions of Courage art contest, Carly is able to pursue her love of arts and crafts while gaining a sense of satisfaction and pride that she doesn't easily find in many activities," explained Kelly Richards of Westmont, Ill., mother of a past contest winner. "The contest is a meaningful and positive experience for Carly, and she looks forward to creating her entry each year."

Artwork may be created in ink, pencil, crayon, paint or a combination of these materials and must be on paper or board no larger than 8 1
