Vote for Christine Newland for "Design for Paul McCartney"

Londoner, and Orchestra London's principal cellist Christine Newland has entered a portrait (see it and vote here) in the Paul McCartney competition.

From the talenthouse website where you can vote:

The legendary Paul McCartney, hailed as the ‘greatest composer of the millennium’, is inviting designers to submit graphic art inspired by his critically acclaimed solo albums ‘McCartney’ and ‘McCartney II’. Designers can draw inspiration from ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ from ‘McCartney’ and ‘Coming Up’ from ‘McCartney II’. The winner will receive global exposure by having their graphic art featured on Paul McCartney’s website and on his social media channels. Paul McCartney will sign a lithograph print of the winning graphic art which will be exhibited in one of London’s most fashionable galleries, Idea Generation before being given to the winner.

Paul McCartney is choosing the winners, but "with special consideration for the top voted entries".

Go here to see the various entries and vote.  Make sure you vote for the right one - there is another one that looks very similar.  ( We want the pastel version - not the one with the bright yellow/orange hair) Voting starts today, and goes to Sept 13.

London has recently won contests for money to plant trees, and to name Labatt Park Canada's favourite ballpark - both based on voting.  So can we make this 3  for 3?

[Disclosure - I'm on the Orchestra London Board - which may explain why this caught my interest in the first place - but I'm not doing this post, or voting in that capacity.]
