‘Our prestigious awards program is a nation-wide competition that aims to celebrate the diversity of the arts and raise the profile of both local and non-local artists,’ Mayor Kerry Hayes said.
‘Whether your weapon of choice is a paint bush, a camera or even a keyboard and mouse, as long as you have a flair for the creative we want to hear from you.’
The awards include the Central Highlands Regional Council (CHRC) Acquisitive Award, the CHRC Local Artist Award, the Margaret Gibson Youth Award and the People’s Choice Award.
