Competition rules

The ‘What Does Recovery Mean to Me?’ competition is designed so that the winning logo resonates with staff and people using services in BEH and focuses attention on person centred services, encouraging staff to strive for excellence. The intention is that the competition process should serve as a listening exercise for BEH from senior management through OT, peer workers and staff on the ground. Because of this, we want to ask entrants to the competition to design an image that they can talk to and explain the story behind, which answers the question ‘What does recovery mean to me?’.

How do I enter?

Send a photo of your image as an email attachment with your name and contact details to beh-tr.recovery@nhs.net. Please send a strapline for your image. Suggested straplines are: ‘With you for the journey’ or ‘People at the centre’ but you might want to develop your own.

Entries can also be accepted by post. Please send them to the Patient Experience Team, Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, St Ann's Hospital, St Ann's Road, London N15 3TH. Original artwork cannot be returned.

How is the winner chosen?

Inclusion Barnet, our independent peer led charity partners, are coordinating the shortlisting, which will take place with a panel of peer workers and Experts by Experience who are BEH workers or have used BEH services. The final winner will be decided at a meeting of the Enablement Board in January 2022 by a scoring system from a maximum shortlist of 10. Entries will be judged on creativity, clarity of message, and relevance to the Trust values.

What are the prizes?

The whole shortlist – a maximum of 10 entries – will receive prizes to the value of £50 each. These can be taken in the form of vouchers to a Tottenham Hotspurs experience day, a Champneys Enfield City Spa, or £50 vouchers for 'I Love to Shop', which is accepted at a wide range of retailers.

The winners will receive their prizes at a virtual tea party ceremony for all the shortlisted artists.

Everyone attending the tea party ceremony will receive a celebration hamper delivered to their door for them to take part in the tea party.  

How will my image be used?

Copyright of the image remains with the entrant, but the entrant licences BEH to use the logo developed from the image across the Trust, on websites and social media. The winner will work with a graphic designer to turn their winning design into a reproducible logo.

Is there any additional publicity associated with the competition?

As an entrant, you can keep your name and details anonymous. If you are shortlisted, we would like to support you to tell the story behind your image. There are a number of ways to do this which can still preserve anonymity, and it is essential that you remain anonymous if you are under section.

However, if you would like to tell the story behind your image, we will support you to do so in a specially commissioned film by mental health film makers, Flexible Films. We can also offer you the opportunity to have a professional photo of yourself and/or your shortlisted image. The film will be screened at the awards ceremony, and shortlisted entrants who choose not to take part in the film can share the story of their image live in person there.

When will the winners be announced?

The shortlist will be announced a week after the closing date of the competition on 4 January 2022. The winner will be announced at the tea party ceremony in January. Prizes will be available to winner and shortlist a week after the ceremony.
