Young artists of the Gladstone Region have the chance again, to get creative as Council invites primary school aged children to enter the 2022 Celebrate Australia Primary School Art Competition.
Initiated in 2006, this ever-growing art collection, inspired by ‘who and what makes Australia great’, features work by local primary school-aged students. Digital copies of entries are stored in the Gallery & Museum’s digital vault.
Since the first presentation was held in 2007, the Gallery & Museum has received thousands of vibrant submissions.
Each year, winners are announced during Council’s Australia Day celebrations and the colourful and imaginative artworks tour the region for all to enjoy.
As part of an annual cultural exchange, 14 selected works are exhibited in Gladstone’s Sister City, Saiki City, Japan.
Local artist Leanne Cole will present a free virtual workshop online on Friday 10 December to help students with their entries.
To enter, students simply draw, paint or collage an aspect of Australia they believe is iconic on A4 paper and submit it with a completed entry form, available from Council’s offices, venues and libraries.
There are two sections of entry: Section One - Prep to Year 2 and Section Two - Year 3 to Year 6.
Entries close 4pm, Friday, 17 December 2021
