Warringah Art Prize

Prize Pool More Than Doubled as Exhibition Moves to Warringah Creative Space
Artists are the winners as Warringah Council relaunches the Warringah Art Exhibition as the Warringah Art Prize – more than doubling the prize pool to $22,000.
‘Residents have told us how important self-expression and creativity is to our community, so we’ve doubled our commitment to this important art event,’ said Warringah Mayor Michael Regan.
‘In addition to more than doubling the prize money, we’re holding the event over two exhibitions, both at our own Warringah Creative Space. For the first time the very popular Youth and Waste to Art finalists will be displayed in their own exhibition, separate to the General finalists.’

The extra prize money has come thanks to Council staff finding efficiencies in the event, which has been running for more than 60 years.
The General category is open to artists 18 and above. The Youth category has been split into two groups 12 – 16 years and 17 – 21 years.
Two dimensional original paintings, drawings, printmaking, collage and photography can be entered in the General or Youth categories.
The Waste to Art category is open to everyone over 12 years and can also include sculpture, clothing, collage and jewellery, but it must be made from reused or recycled materials.
Registrations close Sunday 12 July 2015. For registration form and conditions of entry, visit: warringah.nsw.gov.au/play/arts-and-culture/warringah-art-prize

ARTIST CALL OUT: Temporary urban design projects


Waverley Council is carrying out a series of temporary urban design projects to activate and improve the quality of the public domain in the Bondi Junction Centre.
Waverley Council is inviting quotations from artists and design groups to design and install a public artwork on the temporary hoarding around the Boot Factory building in Norman Lee Place. The project offers an opportunity to create an inviting urban artwork that improves the visual character of the space and adds much needed detail, fun and interest at human scale. The final artwork must have a strong concept which creates atmosphere, is generous, uplifting and inviting. Artists are to submit quotations (up to $15,000) and concepts by 5pm on 16 April 2015

It is envisaged that the artwork will:

· have a vibrancy that is immersing, fluid and playful at human scale;

· allow pedestrians to re-think how they engage in the everyday within their urban
environment;

· be informed by the site and history of the area; and

· appeal to a wide audience and be uplifting to the spirit.

For application packs and details on how to apply please see the tenders online website;
