The primary aim of this exhibition and web site is to promote a better understanding of epilepsy and art, rather than as a "contest." However, a few awards were presented in appreciation for the time and insights from the artists. Information on future exhibitions and awards is available on request.
FEATURED ARTISTS: 24 artists with epilepsy were selected by an independent jury as "Featured Artists" in 2009.

Each "Featured Artist" for 2010 recieved a check for $100 (AUD) that was generously donated by the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria. An slide show of each artist's work will be added to one's web page in December of 2010.
