Regional Art Awards 2018

21 August – 15 September 2018

Entries now open

Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council annually extends an invitation to all artists and craftspeople who reside in the Queanbeyan-Palerang,

Cooma Monaro or Yass Valley Local Government Areas, to enter the Regional Art Awards. The non-acquisitive awards aim to enhance the recognition and support of our regions artists and craftspeople, particularly from emerging to mid-career artists.

This year Council invites the regions young artists to consider entering the Awards, with the introduction of a $250 Youth Encouragement Award.

Once again this year, sponsorship support has been kindly offered from Queanbeyan’s own Form Studio and Gallery, which will see one talented artist receiving an award for Professional Practice valued at up to $2000. In addition, Council continues to sponsor the main Award of $2,000, the Highly Commended Award of $500 and the People’s Choice Award and Youth Encouragement Award of $250 each.
