Since its inception in 2010, this unique art competition has encouraged eating disorder treatment centers, art therapists, clients, therapy groups and the general public to reflect on the perception of beauty to challenge audiences to look and see beyond the purely physical. The artwork tells an individual or collective story about how those in treatment reflected upon or rediscovered their feelings about authentic beauty.
