Lead-safety Art Awards in Lead Week of Action

The only Australian event on the List of events for the International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week of Action (23-29 October 2016) at the World Health Organization website at www.who.int/ipcs/lead_campaign/events/en/ is Volcano Art Prize (VAP) Awards Ceremony in Sydney – so let’s celebrate!

You can see all the entries for this year – our fifth and biggest year yet for VAP – in this September 2016 issue of LEAD Action News. And you can even “attend” the Awards Ceremony via Skype. The 2016 VAP Art Judge, Kari McKern, will be handing out the beautiful 30 Pictureproducts mug prizes and the People’s Choice and Judge’s cash prizes at 6pm on Monday 24th October 2016 at Creative Einstein in Campsie.

Another way for you to take action in the fourth International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week of Action is to order a Lead Safe World Poster at www.leadsafeworld.com/shop and have it displayed at your GP or vet clinic, childcare centre, school, university, workplace, gun club or at home ‘cos you like the picture! Any VAP Entry can be made into a poster!
