“Don’t Live in a Bubble” is one of the first place winning photography entries in last year’s contest.

The contest — a collaboration of Texas Health and Human Services Commission, the Texas Institute for Excellence in Mental Health at UT Austin, and the Texas System of Care — aims to raise awareness of mental health experiences, challenge the stigma of mental health, and provide an opportunity to express complex emotions through creative outlets.

Participants may submit original, creative works that draw on the contest theme: “Why Does Mental Health Matter to You?

The contest is judged in four age groups — elementary school, middle school, high school and adult.

Last year the contest received 671 submissions — and even more are expected this year.

Deadline: March 1.
