RAW art award for Bendigo youth is a great opportunity.


The City of Greater Bendigo is calling on young creative artists to enter the 2010 Raw Art Awards.

These annual awards are a great way for young people just starting in their creative field to gain recognition as well as possibly take home a substantial financial award.

Each year when the awards are announced the artists get a chance to display their work for the delight and critique of their peers, friends and strangers alike.

“We know we have an abundance of talented young people and we are keen for them to be recognised through these awards, said City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Rod Campbell.

“The awards provide a wonderful opportunity to showcase our creative young people and I encourage all young artists to enter the category that best showcases their talent.”

“Categories include the Visual Arts Acquisitive Award, Literature scholarship, Performing arts scholarship and Multi-media scholarship, with each category carrying a first prize of $1,000.

“This year for the first time each category will also include a Highly Commended prize worth $250.”

Application close Friday March 26 and are open to residents of the City of Greater Bendigo aged 26 and under on 13 April 2010.

Award winners will be announced at the opening of the 2010 Raw Art Exhibition set to take place at Dudley House from Tuesday April 13 to Sunday April 18 during Youth Week 2010.

Information and application forms are available to download online from the RAW Arts Award page at www.bendigo.vic.gov.au This year the application process for the Literature, Performing arts and Multi-media scholarships has been made simpler.

For more information phone Rohan Phillips on 5434 6464 or email raw@bendigo.vic.gov.au

From my own perspective I really enjoy seeing the work these artists are creating. I just wish there was a similar award for people who while not young in age are young in their endeavours to be artists later in life (yes I fit into this category!)
