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

Reminder: Artwork must be registered and delivered to the Nightcliff Community Bank at 40 Progress Drive before the event or it won't be eligible for prize money and will be excluded from display. The only exceptions will be for arrangements made through the registration process.
There will be four categories in the 2021 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.
