Organising committee chairwoman Stephanie White said the art prize event grew each year and, despite COVID-19 forcing the event’s cancellation last year, 2021 looked to be on track to flourish.

“It is a welcome gathering point and focus for local and visiting artists from around the region and interstate,” Ms White said.

Entry is $35 per piece, with a maximum of two entries for each artist. Early bird entry with a saving of $5 closes on June 19, with general entry closing on June 26.

An exhibition of entries will run from July 16-August 7.
