Growing Back East Gippsland
2021 Student Calendar Competition
Submission entries extended to Sunday 4th October.
Growing Back East Gippsland is a visual art competition inviting the students of East Gippsland to produce an original piece of work to be included in a collaborative creative project.
East Gippsland has suffered several recent acute shocks following drought, bushfires and other subsequent events. We would love for you to create a piece of are that symbolises ‘Regrowth, Resilience and Hope’ to you and/or your community.
Your art work can be provided in various forms i.e. Photo, Drawing, Painting, Story etc. Please attach a photo or scanned image below of your art work, however please keep your original art work in a safe place as we may need you to provide that at a later date.
How to enter in 3 easy steps.
Create your masterpiece using any medium you’d like. Paint, pencil, photography, short story, we encourage a total mix of mediums. Your only limit is your imagination, but there are a few simple guidelines to follow!
Here are a few questions that you might like to consider as you think about your creation:
How do you picture “hope”?
What does the landscape and regrowth look like now in your town?
Turn the page to 2021 – What do you look forward to?
Theme: Regrowth & Hope
Size: Landscape A4
Ages: Students from prep to year 12
Once your piece is complete, photograph (an iPhone snap will do) or scan your artwork so you can send us a digital version. We will be judging all the entries digitally, so a well lit photo with no shadows or better yet a scan of the artwork would be best.
Please also hang on to the original, we might need to scan it ourselves for reproduction in the calendar if it’s a winning entry!
After you have taken a photo or scanned the artwork, send the entry to us! It’s as simple as that really.
The Competition opens on Mon 24 August 2020 and entries must be submitted by 4 October.
Judging will take place in October 2020. Winning entries will receive a gift card for $50, and their artwork will be included in our Regrowth Calendar and Virtual Gallery.
