To celebrate World Wetlands Day 2012 on February 2, WetlandCare Australia is hosting their 5th annual Australia wide art and photography competition. There are categories for young people and adults, and for the first time the competition includes categories specifically for Indigenous artists.
The categories in the competition have been designed to give as many people as possible the opportunity to submit entries.
All artworks and photographs must be the original work of the entrant, and provided on paper, unframed and up to A3 in size.
All categories of the competition are acquisitive; reproductions of the winning entries of the WetlandCare Australia National Art and Photography Competition may be used by WetlandCare Australia to promote wetlands, and the work of WetlandCare Australia.
The competition closes on December 2 2011. Winners will be notified on December 22 2011 and awarded their prizes on February 1 2012 at an official awards ceremony at the CSIRO Discovery Centre in Canberra.
CCWA is proud to present the inaugural Western Australian Environmental Art Awards Exhibition.
The exhibition will showcase art work reflecting the WA environment and key environmental themes and will run from Saturday 22nd October to Saturday 5th November.

For all you modernist furniture fans out there who covet various pieces from Eames, Featherston, Parker and others, you are in for a modern day treat. A name you may soon be hearing more of is Matty Smith, who just last month won the 2010 Tasmanian Design Centre Award for Sustainability and Emerging Designer with his quirky take on a cabinet named “shortdivision”.
