Sunshine Coast Council is seeking entries from emerging tertiary students by 28 March for the prestigious Sunshine Coast Art Prize Tertiary 3 (SCAP T3).

Division 12 Councillor Tony Wellington said SCAP T3, offering a $3000 award in each Two Dimensional (2D) and Three Dimensional (3D) categories, will be a showcase of the region’s dynamic new and emerging artists.

“The prize is open to all tertiary students living or studying on the Sunshine Coast,” he said.

“Sunshine Coast locals who are enrolled as undergraduates in tertiary institutions in other regions can also enter, as can those who are studying via accredited online courses.

“The aim of the prize is to promote local talent and at the same time raise awareness of the creative educational opportunities on the Sunshine Coast.

“To be eligible to enter, artwork must be an original and unaided work of the entrant completed two years prior to the closing date.

“To enter students will be required to complete an entry form available online via the SCAP website or by calling the Butter Factory Arts Centre on (07) 5454 9050.”

Selected SCAP T3 entries will be exhibited at the Butter Factory Arts Centre, Cooroy between 15 August and 5 October 2013. The winners will be announced at an official exhibition launch on Saturday 7 September 2013 at 5pm.

Now in its eighth consecutive year, SCAP has achieved national acclaim for its annual representation of contemporary Australian art, offering prizes valued at over $46,000 in 2D, 3D and T3 (Tertiary) categories. For full details visit council’s website.
