Artwork at the ready! Entries now open for Central Highlands Annual Art Awards – Springsure

Posted on January 12, 2022

Established and emerging artists of all ages are invited to submit entries across seven categories for the 2022 Central Highlands Regional Council (CHRC) Annual Art Awards – Springsure.  

With more than $6,000 in this year’s prize pool, all artists from easel-based to digital art are encouraged to submit their work. 

Each year, judges award the prestigious Central Highlands Regional Council Acquisitive Award of $2,000 to the most outstanding work from the first five categories. 

Jemma Isherwood, winner of the Acquisitive prize at our recent CHRC Art Awards – Emerald, encourages anyone considering entering their artwork to give it a go as you never know what could happen. 

“It was quite surprising to win the Acquisitive prize for my artwork, Too Much on her Plate,” Jemma said. 

“Photography and digital art is a newer medium, and it is wonderful to see it recognised at this scale.” 

“If you are thinking of submitting an art piece, treat the art gallery as a way to share your work, and its story with the wider community.” 

Entries close Friday 4 February 2022 at 5.00 pm. 

The exhibition with all competition entries will be open from Friday, 4 March 2022. 

All artworks will be displayed at the Bauhinia Bicentennial Art Gallery – Springsure until Wednesday, 13 April 2022.
