The People’s Choice Award winner will be accounced between 3-5pm. So please come along and check out the artworks and the mini market stalls at CoSydney.
It was very tough for the judges to select the winners from the 29 amazing art boards. As your business art coach, you are all winners. The purpose of the competition was a way of searching for new talent and a motivational call out to emerging and established artists to encourage you to take action and participation. It was a great opportunity for you to get your name out and showcasing you art in a gallery at a tiny cost of only $50 and also an opportunity to test the market to see the reaction of art lovers and collectors. We would encourage you to keep entering different competitions, it will help you grow as an artist.
The ArtSHINE gallery now plans to run three art prizes a year to search for new talents and promote their artworks. The next Art prize competittion will be launched in the first week of August “Draw me a calendar” competition.
