Time is running out for artists to make submissions for the 2019 Moreton Bay Region Art Awards and with $18,000 in prize money up for grabs it is an opportunity not to be missed.


Artists are being encouraged to submit work for consideration across four categories including painting, works on paper, photo digital and 3D.


The Art Awards are now in their 26th year.


Council Spokesperson for Lifestyle and Amenity, Denise Sims, said this year’s prizes included $8000 for the overall winner, four category winner prizes of $2000 and two supplementary $1000 prizes for a Local Artist and a People’s Choice Award winners.


“In addition to the generous prizes, this competition provides all finalists with a platform to have their work professionally hung as part of a beautifully displayed exhibition across two weeks in May,” Cr Sims said.


“The Art Awards are the biggest of their kind for this region and I would encourage artists to make a submission.”
