Entries for the fourteenth annual Shaun Tan Award for Young Artists are now open!
All Western Australian students aged five to eighteen years are invited to submit an original drawing, painting or two-dimensional piece for the prestigious art award.
The award encourages imagination, innovation and creativity in visual art and provides an opportunity for students to develop their skills and work towards producing high quality artworks they can take pride in.
Judging will be undertaken by a panel of teachers, artists and illustrators who will be looking for pieces that are unique in their concept, technique originality and choice of materials, all features which are embodied in the work of award patron Shaun Tan.
Finalists will be recognised at a presentation ceremony and receive prizes courtesy of the City of Subiaco and the 2016 award sponsors:
- Janet Holmes a Court AC
- Creative Kids Art Club
- New Edition Bookshop
- Prime Art Picture Framers
- One20 Productions
- Kool Kreative.
Entries close on Monday 9 May at 5.30pm.
