Are you blind or have low vision, and have a passion for creating art?

Sumbissions are open for artists of all ages who are blind or have low vision to have their drawings or paintings showcased in Vision Australia's 2022 large print calendar or diary.

Tom Kennedy had his artwork 'Ride With Me' featured on the cover of this year's Vision Australia calendar.

His artwork represented the freedom and joy he felt when he rode his bike, especially in lockdown.

The Year 7 student from Castle Hill is legally blind, and has been painting and drawing since he was two years old.

Artists must submit original landscape works to fit into a calendar format.
