ArtSpace location is exposed and open to moderate to severe winds.
Paper or thin cardboard are easily damaged and not suitable. Work is
displayed on wire fencing (see pictures). Experience has told us that
using cable ties to secure artwork is our safest option in the wind.
We will have hooks and ties for all work but work not ready on these
to hang will be excluded.
It is preferable that the artist submits their work ready to hang.
2018 ArtSpace will be at its original location at the Nightcliff Jetty.
Please support the sponsors of this years Jetty ArtSpace additional categories:
All registered entries are eligible for the major prize and will be voted on by the Community between 12 noon and 6pm.
coordinator will also allocate each piece of art to a second
individual category which will be set once we see what art is
entered. This includes schools and community groups.
In 2016 Nightcliff Community Enterprises introduced an incentive for schools to assist in purchasing materials to create art work.
All eligible registrations received before
will be given $150. This has been extended to Friday April 20th because of the disruption caused by cyclone Marcus.

All enquiries to the coordinator Tracey on 0417 921 679 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that I am not an employee at the Branch, I am in full time employment and will respond to messages as soon as possible. Text messages and emails are the preferred contact method.
Categories and sponsors are under development and may be changed.
Photography Sponsored by Enjoy Darwin
Actual photograph may be printed to a maximum of A4 in size and must be on a solid/firm backing to prevent damage. We recommend corflute. Must be prepared to hang as noted above.
2D Art - painting, drawing, etc is usually the most popular category.
Wearable Art Work can be wearable items such as clothing or jewellery. Consideration by the artist needs to be made for how it will be displayed. Live models are acceptable, they will need to be on site for 4 hours. Models will not be permitted to solicit votes.
Recycled Work must contain 100% recycled products (excluding any paint, glue or other adhesives) and can be in any format. It can be free standing however the Artist will need to consider how to display their work.
Sculpture/3D/Dimensional Formats Basically – anything that isn’t flat! Artist needs to consider how this can be displayed and it should be prepared accordingly.
Community Group Can be any medium but must be created as a group by people in a group which qualifies such as a community group, charitable organisation, sporting group or non-school education facility. Please ask the coordinator if you’re not sure.
