The preselection panel members and Judges for both the Adult Awards and Junior Awards change every year. They are a group of independent experts in their respective fields who display no bias or allegiance to any artist. Due to the large volume of entries, we are unable to provide individual feedback to the artist. We are unable to enter into any discussion about the selection of finalists and winners. The judges decisions are final.
The work will be judged based on
- technical skill
- a recognisable and relatable form and composition
- individuality and creativity
- that 'certain something' that makes you look twice, think about it, talk about it, or simply be amazed by the work
Judging will be done prior to exhibition opening, announced at Award Ceremony and published on this website.
