To enter, you will need to complete an online entry form with an image of your art, and make payment of the entry fee (via Eventbrite) by the closing date. Entries close at 4pm, Friday 7 October 2022.
An entry fee of $30 per artist is applicable, or $13 for artists under the age of 18 (age as at 4 November 2022).
It's up to you! We have previously accepted painting in oils, watercolours and acrylics, sculpture, drawing, mixed media, collages, resin art, photography, digital media, and printmaking, to name a few.
We accept all types of art as long as it is within the specifications listed in the Conditions of Entry (which will be uploaded to this page on the day entries open).
There is a limit of one piece of artwork per person. If your artwork comprises more than one element or piece, such as a sculpture that requires a stand (two pieces), this is acceptable and will count as one piece. No diptych or triptych works will be accepted.
