Local and national artists have less than two months to enter Remagine, Hornsby Shire Council’s waste and environmental art prize. With a total prize pool of $11,000, entries close on 26 April 2023.
Hosted by Hornsby Shire Council in partnership with the Hornsby Art Society since 2009, the Remagine Art Prize challenges artists to create works in response to the crisis we are all facing, with waste and over-consumption.
This year’s theme is Wasteland or wonderland referring to the decisions we make each day about how much waste we create. Will our future be a ‘wasteland’ or can we start taking steps to create a ‘wonderland’ by making better choices to build a circular economy where we protect the world’s finite natural resources and see waste as a valuable resource?
Entries are open to digital stills, sculpture, mixed media, painting, photography, drawing, ceramics, and printmaking. There are six prizes to be won this year:
- First prize: $5,000
- Second prize: $3,000
- Recycled/reused Materials Award $1,000
- Local Artist Award: $1,000
- Youth Award (16-21 years): $750
- People’s Choice Award: $250
This year’s esteemed panel of judges are Australian contemporary artist Leila Jeffreys, curator Nick Vickers and John Cheeseman, Director of the Mosman Art Gallery.
