The theme in 2014 will be: a Scriptural person, event, passage or theme and is open to all Primary and Secondary school students enrolled in Catholic systemic, congregational and Government schools in the Diocese of Broken Bay.

Your artwork may be in any artistic medium including painting, drawing, print, photography, film, sculpture, dance, drama. Your artwork must be inspired by a Scriptural person, event, passage, or theme. In some schools, the inspiration for your artwork may be linked with a particular unit of work e.g. The Life of Jesus.

We need to limit artworks to
•a weight of 15 kg, a weight that can easily be carried by one person;
•a size that can easily be transported in the boot or backseat of a car;
•no longer than three minutes in length
•artworks that require no more than three minutes for one person to set up.

The artwork should of course be your own original work. If your artwork contains an image/s of another person/s you should first seek their permission, preferably in writing, explaining that you will be including your artwork in an exhibition which will be viewed by other people at school and possibly on the Web.

Your artwork must be completed no later than 1st August 2014, in time for judging at school which will be finalised no later than the 22 August or the end of Week 3 in Term 3, 2014. All students will receive participation certificates. Many students will be awarded ‘Commended’ and ‘Highly Commended’ certificates. Up to three artworks in each stage, judged to be the best in stage, will be delivered to the Catholic Schools Office for judging by a panel. All these students will receive certificates acknowledging their inclusion for judging as finalists.
