Winton Wetlands artwork wanted
WINTON Wetlands is welcoming artwork submissions from children of primary school age for their 2019 calendar.
The 12 winning artists will each receive a $100 voucher and will be judged on the feature of bright colours, creativity, good technical skills, use of space and a good accompanying story.
All funds raised from the sale of next year’s calendar will go towards the Friends of Winton Wetlands restoration work, which includes tree planting, the monitoring and protection of turtles, frogs and other species, and more.
For an added challenge, the artwork will need to address one of the following ecological themes: birds, wildlife, pest animals, insects, habitat or threatened/endangered species.
“These themes are really relevant to Winton Wetlands as our ongoing restoration supports environmental balance and includes food webs which encompass everything from insects to predator species,” said Matt Roberts, president of Friends of Winton Wetlands.
To enter the competition, entrants must provide their full name, age, school name and grade, and a parent/guardian’s contact phone number.
Artwork should be landscape, A4 size, accompanied by 25 words or less and can be submitted electronically to email@example.com (suggested 300dpi resolution, and original made available upon request) or via post or in person to: Winton Wetlands - Calendar Art Competition, 652 Lake Mokoan Road, Chesney Vale VIC 3725.
The competition closes at 5pm on Monday, November 12 and you can find out full details on www.wintonwetlands.org.au.
