Stanthorpe has held this art festival every 2 years since 1972 - we've nailed the best way to look after artists! Our two judges - Ron Ramsey (Ian Potter Museum of Art) for 2 D and Jason Smith (Australian Art at QAGoMA) will each handle their own pre-selection from works entered, for the final judging. They will collaborate to decide both the overall winner and the Emerging Artist award. In recognition of the standard and significance of works, each judge will choose a work for the two $5000 awards. Are you are an emerging artist or do you know an artist who deserves some extra support ? Our Emerging Artist award received high praise in 2014 and our sponsor returned for 2016 and this acknowledges their awareness of the importance of encouragement for emerging artists. Join us for 2016 - it could be the best resolution you make.
