Some say you gift gold for a 50th anniversary, but we’ve got a another way of celebrating in mind… Help us mark half a century of championing regional Queensland arts by showing us how you ‘Paint the Town’ in this year’s Queensland Regional Art Awards (QRAA)!
Early bird entries are now open until 28 June. Earn your chance to win a share of $42,000 in prizes with the largest prize pool yet, thanks to all our partners, including our major prize and touring exhibition partner Holding Redlich.
There are three exciting new prize categories for photography, landscape and First Nations art, and added value for the major prize. See all the details of our new and retuning partners and all prize categories here.
Evoking the spirit of celebration, of all things jubilant, artists are invited to respond to the question – how do you celebrate? Is it a party, a big bash or a simple elegant affair, serene or riotous, extended explosions of joy or quiet moments reflection and gratitude, ceremony, tradition or ritual, expressed in dance or song, full of sentiment or tears, an anniversary, a farewell or a whim, with family, friends, a whole community or alone, a sense of occasion, a festival or just because? Whatever the reason or season, whatever your medium or practice, we invite you to Paint the Town. Enter now
