Important information for entry
Please prepare your work for us to hang
The ArtSpace experiences moderate to severe winds and while the sea breeze is refreshing to feel it can lift even heavy pieces of art and throw them. Art is displayed on fencing panels and we've learned that using cable ties to secure it is our safest and most reliable option in the wind.
We will have hooks and cable ties for registered entries but artists must prepare their own work to hang.
Cardboard and paper are impossible to hang and damage is guaranteed.
All artwork is displayed at the owners risk.
Images of Artworks and Artists may be used in promotional material by Nightcliff Community Bank® Branch
Please consider the size of your art and items which are large, heavy or bulky will need the artist to arrange delivery and collection directly to the event.
Art which needs to be displayed in a particular way will need to be delivered and arranged by the artist.
Delivery before the big day:
Nightcliff Community Bank , 40 Progress Drive Nightcliff
Open 9.30am - 5pm Monday to Friday
Please avoid the last 30-60 minutes before closing if possible.
No other Bendigo Banks can accept artwork
On the big day:
Nightcliff Jetty between 7am and 11am. Voting closes at 7pm sharp, and work can be collected until 8pm.
Reminder: Artwork must be registered before the event or it won't be eligible for prize money and may be excluded from display if there is no space.
There will be four categories in the 2020 Jetty Art Competition;
Schools/ Groups, Individual Artist, Junior Artists (U18) and Primary Schoolers
All artwork is up for the Community Choice prize in their category.
Who can say whether a painting, a sculpture or a photo is better art?
The community will be the judge!
All forms of art are eligible provided it can be successfully displayed at the jetty.
Recycled - When you recycle something, you process it so it can be used again. Needs to be a very high percentage of reused items except for any glue or paint.
3D - 3D art is perceived to have height, width and depth, and having these three makes it a form; meaning all 3D arts have form. It is not flat like paintings, drawings and photographs.
Collage - Not just magazine pictures on paper in the world of fine art collage is a specific art term, meaning a piece formed primarily by images that are adhered to an item to form a new image. (mosaic included)
Mixed media - Mixed media simply means more than one medium being used in a piece, so it can be painting and magazine images, assembled junk, ink and watercolor, etc etc
Painting - A painting is an image (artwork) created using pigments (color) on a surface (ground) such as paper or canvas. The pigment may be in a wet form, such as paint, or a dry form.
Since 2016 Nightcliff Community Enterprises has provided an incentive for schools to assist in purchasing materials to create art work.
Register before April 24th and receive $150 to assist with costs of art supplies.
Conditions apply: This payment is only for schools, charitable or not for profit organisations, education providers and community groups. Entry must be a single piece and not individual pieces of work.
