We are proud to be partnering with independent publisher, Saqi Books to run a competition to win a copy of RISE by Maliha Abidi, plus a print from the book!
RISE celebrates the inspirational stories of 100 remarkable women of colour. From the entrepreneur with a homemade marmalade business who went on to found Women’s World Banking, to the educator who built the first university in the world; and from the athlete who fled civil war on a sinking boat and then swam in the Olympics, to the first Black female astronaut, these trailblazers have risen above challenges to reach dizzying heights.
What we are looking for
- A written profile: use 500 words to tell us about your chosen person and why you find
- An artwork of your chosen person. You can create the artwork any way you like: it can
be a drawing, painting, collage or photograph.
One written entry and one artwork will win a copy of the book RISE by Maliha Abidi and
a print of one of her illustrations!
