Winners are prized for first, second and third places overall, with a single winner representing each category. Since 2014, the major monetary prize is donated by Bendigo Bank, Margate. This generous gift is testimony to their support of particular local events which in turn enhances community interest in the arts and culture. The impact of Covid on business expenditure during lean times makes their continued sponsorship of first prize overall extra special. Kind monetary gifts from other local sponsors, foster the prestige of being a competition contender. Preselection of the works means only a chosen number of paintings are hung.
RAS members consider it a privilege and a wonderful opportunity to belong to the society. The Society celebrates its 60th birthday in 2021. It has consistently enriched the arts and culture of Redcliffe and the surrounding region. The Society creates a great meeting place and promotes the cultivation and appreciation of the fine arts by providing public programs including demonstrations, art classes, workshops and exhibitions.
