Win­ton Wet­lands art­work wanted

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Festival Of Jazz & Blues -

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 info@win­ton­wet­lands.org.au (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.
