Your Hospital's Got Talent


Have you got a talent or hobby that you’re proud of? We want to hear about it, and more importantly, we want to see it!

After the success or the 2014 'Your Hospital's Got Talent' project, The Arts in York Hospital are bringing it back for its second year and we're encouraging staff to get involved again.

What are we looking for?

Our staff have an incredible range of extraordinary talents and we want to celebrate them as they’re something to be proud of! We’re going to construct an exhibition that shows off your talents…  so if you embroider, run marathons or play the flute we’d like you to send a photo, if you write poems or short stories, send us text files, or if you paint or draw, send us a scan of your work. Your talent can be as big or small as you like!

What will we do with the entries?

Every entry will appear on the York Hospital website with a credit to the staff member who contributed it. A panel of judges will select their favourite 20 to be professionally printed and exhibited in the main gallery space at York and Scarborough Hospitals and on a digital photo frame in Bridlington. At the end of the exhibitions, the successful 20 applicants will be offered their printed submission to keep.

How to Enter

All entries should be submitted digitally, sized 30cm x 30cm at 300dpi. (Your file size should be at least 4 MB). Unfortunately, due to the size that we intend to print the finished entries, we can not accept smaller image files than this.

If you can’t crop your work into a 30cm x 30cm square, please send it A3 and we will crop it into a square for you.

Please also send a short piece of text telling us all about you and your amazing talent. Include your name, your job title and which hospital you work in, and a short piece of text about you and your talent (no more than 130 words please). This could include how you got into it, why you enjoy doing it or even why you think others might like to join in.

Can I enter if I entered last year?

All entrants from last year are welcome to take part in 'Your Hospital's Got Talent' again this year. You can either enter with a new talent, or with the same talent as last year, but with a new image and description. I.e. if you entered as a photographer last year, you can enter as a photographer again, but must submit a different photograph.
