Sunshine Coast Council is seeking entries for the prestigious Sunshine Coast Art Prize Tertiary 3 (SCAP T3). This art award offers prizes totalling $6000 to emerging tertiary students.
Division 12 Councillor Tony Wellington said SCAP T3, offering a $3000 award in both ‘Two Dimensional’ (2D) and ‘Three Dimensional’ (3D) categories, will be a showcase of the region’s young and emerging artists.
“The prize is open to all undergraduate tertiary students living or studying on the Sunshine Coast,” he said.
“Sunshine Coast residents who are enrolled as undergraduates in tertiary institutions in other regions can also enter, as can those who are studying via accredited online courses.
“The aim of the prize is to promote local talent and simultaneously raise awareness of the creative educational opportunities on the Sunshine Coast.
“To be eligible artwork must have been completed between 1 July 2011 and July 2012.
“To enter students need to complete an entry form which is available by visiting council’s website by 6 July.
“Selected entries will be exhibited at the Butter Factory Arts Centre, Cooroy between 20 July and 25 August. The winners will be announced at an official exhibition launch on Thursday 26 July at 6pm.”
