The annual art competition enables south-east residents to unleash their inner artists
which offers creative people the opportunity to reduce, reuse and recycle their way to $4000. Works must be produced from at least 80 per cent reclaimed or recycled materials and can be in any medium, style or theme.
The prize is open to all artists, craftspeople and creative makers who live in the Bega Valley, Bombala, Boorowa, Cooma Monaro, Eurobodalla, Goulburn Mulwaree, Harden, Palerang, Queanbeyan, Snowy River Shire, Upper Lachlan, Yass and Young Shire Council areas.
Council’s Coordinator Creative Arts Development Indi Carmichael offers "First prize wins $4000, and there is a $500 People’s Choice Award up for grabs. We are also bringing back the popular ReVive Artist Workshops with eminent artist Katy Goddard, so everyone can get dexterous with their debris.” .
