Pre-Selection and Judging Procedures

Pre-Selection Panel

  • Each year the Organisers appoint a Pre-Selection panel to review entries.
  • The Panel will initially review and assess all submissions received, and will decide which works will be invited to exhibit at the Art Show.
  • The Show Judge/s may or may not be part of the Pre-Selection panel.
  • All decisions on acceptances are final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into.
  • 1st prize winner ($2,000 prize will be paid 100% to the winner). This painting will be included in the Auction on opening night (with a reserve price agreed with the artist and any funds from the auction will be paid to the Artist Less $2,000. If unsold, the painting will be offered for sale in art show at Artist's asking price on application).
  • Artists will be notified which of their works have been accepted to be exhibited on 10th October 2022.

Show Judging

  • Each year the Organisers appoint 3 external Art Show Judge/s for the Show and for 2022 we have TBA. All judges are sourced through the Pepper Street Arts Centre and Atrium.
  • Judging takes place in October and winners will be announced at the Gala Opening and via email thereafter. All artists are welcome to attend the opening night by purchasing an online ticket. See Gala Night - purchase tickets for details on how to book in.
