BBC Amateur Art Contest - again!

I've already covered this once, but yesterday I received several emails about it and it's also been doing the rounds on Facebook. So, in case you missed it, here are the details again:

BBC One is on the hunt for the best of Britain’s amateur artists for a new competitive arts series.
We're looking for amateur painters from all over the UK who have a passion for painting and drawing. If you are over 16 and like a creative challenge we want to hear from you.
Applicants must not be professional artists and will be expected to work in a variety of different figurative forms and media - from landscape, portraiture and still life, to watercolour, oil and charcoal.
To apply - please send your name, address, age, occupation and contact number, along with a recent photo, up to three images of your work, and a short paragraph about why you paint to:
Or by post to:  Amateur Artist, MC5 A6, BBC Media Centre, Wood Lane, London, W12 7TQ
