Here's your chance to get behind University of Derby graduate Mary Nugent in an exciting national competition.

Last summer, Mary caught the imagination of artistic audiences at the Derby Degree Shows with her penny portrait made out of 5,500 1p penny coins for her final project.

She graduated at our Awards Ceremony in January with a BA (Hons) Creative Expressive Therapies degree and has now entered the Saatchi online competition.

The winner gets to exhibit in the Saatchi Gallery in London . There will be two rounds of public voting and in the first round currently taking place until next Tuesday, the top 128 entrants will go into round two where the public votes for a second time.

At the moment, Mary has just made it into that top 128 and she is appealing for your vote to help her cement her place in the second round!
