$2500 WORTH OF CASH PRIZES FOR STUDENT WASTE-ART COMPETITION 

Open to school students and holiday organisations around Australia to repurpose rubbish into prize-winning artworks

FREE ENTRY

All kids from Kindergarten to Year 12 are invited to participate in the 2023 ‘Litterarty’ Waste-Art competition for the chance to win cash prize shares from a pool of $2500 and get involved in the annual Volvo Ocean Lovers Festival!

Free entries will be accepted from individuals, groups and/or classes between NOW and the 24th of February 2023, so be sure to register your digital concept submission soon via the form below.

Works must be constructed from collected rubbish that has been repurposed into an art medium of the students choosing, including sculpture, 2D, assemblage, mixed media, and collage.

Selected entries will be invited to display their works at an exhibition hosted by the Volvo Ocean Lovers Festival at the Bondi Pavilion from the 16th – 19th March 2023, where a panel of ocean devoted judges will determine the winners.

Two Valerie Taylor Prizes, each entailing $750 worth of prize money, funded by Blue World, will be awarded to the primary and secondary school winners elected by the judges. Runner-up prizes of $250 will be awarded to both the primary and secondary categories. A People’s Choice Award of $500 will be awarded to the artwork favoured by fellow ocean lovers at the Volvo Ocean Lovers Festival. In addition, the Australian National Maritime Museum will exhibit the works of the overall primary, secondary and people’s choice winners following the festival!

 

For a chance to view the Litterarty finalist exhibition, participate in free ocean science workshops and receive educational materials about waste impacts on our oceans, email hello@oceanloversfestival.com to apply for a free and immersive excursion to the festival for your students.
