Taungurung Art Competition

Open to artists, photographers, weavers, sculptors,
graphic designers and mixed-media artists.

TCAC are running a competition open to all Taungurung members. The object is to create a piece of artwork to be featured on the front page of the Recognition and Settlement Agreement. Not only is this a great honour to be featured on this historical document but the winner will also receive  a $1500 cash prize.

We would like to broaden the scope for this competition and invite artists from many fields to submit their works, including sculptors, painters, photographers, weavers, and graphic designers.

The key theme is to create a piece that is inspired by Taungurung culture or country. Your piece can be influenced Taungurung creation stories, country, cultural items, language, moieties, dance or any aspect of your Taungurung identity that you wish to express.

If you are a weaver or create artistic works in 3-dimensional form then we ask for you to submit a high quality/high resolution photo of your work.

The closing date for this competition is October 10th.
