EuroNPUD is inviting artists to take part in the Poetry and Art Competition 2021.

The competition is centred on the 1920s poem Cocaine Lil and Morphine Sue and consists of two parts.

Art competition:

Cocaine Lil, Morphine Sue, Dopey Slim, and the Poppy Faced Kid are some of the drug using characters in the classic poem about the cocaine scene in the 1920s. Artists are asked to re-imagine any character from the poem as they might appear in a 2020s drug scene.

Poetry competition:

Poets should reimagine the Cocaine Lil and Morphine Sue poem about drug scenes in Europe in the 2020s describing modern drugs and characters from our drug scenes.

All entries should be sent to euronpud.competition@gmail.com by 24th October 2021 (midnight).
