Entries for Moreton Bay Region’s 2022 Youth Art Awards are open, giving young people the opportunity to show off their creative side and schools a chance to win scholarships for workshops in the collaborative art category.

A swag of prizes and trophies is on offer for young artists in this year’s awards, with $200 for the best individual entry from each of the four grade groups, and in each of the two art categories.

In the collaborative section, groups can win a $1000 scholarship to be spend on art workshops for their school.

The collaborative section is open to schools in the Moreton Bay Region, with groups made up of three or more students.
