As last year the Butterflies for Lupus Showcase 2020 will be hosted on Instagram. At the moment I am doing lots of collages and mixed media designs so my butterflies will be in created using this style. I will post a design on the Butterflies for Lupus Instagram account everyday throughout May to mark Lupus awareness month and World Lupus Day, which is on the 10th May. At the end of the challenge I hope to have at least 31 beautiful butterfly designs to create a Butterfly Showcase which I will share here on the Butterflies for Lupus website and on Pinterest.

Of course the challenge is open to anyone and I hope some of you will find time to create a butterfly for me. All you have to do is follow @butterflies_for_lupus on Instagram, then post your butterfly on your account using the tags #butterfliesforlupus #butterfliesforlupus2020 Your designs will then be automatically included in the final showcase and you will be eligible to take part in a random prize draw. I don’t have details of the prizes yet due to ‘quarantine’ but I will be posting news of them soon. Multiple posts will result in multiple chances to win!

I have created a butterfly moodboard to download using the theme PAPER WINGS, maybe it will inspire you… I hope so!

The request as always is to create butterfly art of any kind; the only restriction being that the artwork should be original and your own work. Anyone can participate by sending a sketch, illustration, painting, pattern, collage or basically anything that uses butterflies as a theme.
Please do not post PHOTOGRAPHS of butterflies.

All the designs will be showcased at the beginning of June on this website and on Pinterest. The names of the prize draw winners will also be given here on the website and on Instagram.
Thank you for reading this and remember that the challenge will begin on the 1st of May, you will be surprised at how easy it is to show your support and help increase Lupus awareness by taking part in the Butterflies for Lupus Showcase 2020.

Thank you

Dawn
