I have a mixed media sculpture in this show. It took me almost 30 hours to make so there's more to it than could be captured in one image. What you see here is not visible as the sculpture has been displayed (it's got a wall directly behind it). This is just the back! You will have to visit the show to see the front.

'The competition, for both 2d and 3d artwork, is advertised nationally, with the finalists (approximately 40 – 50 short listed entries) being exhibited at BHCAC from the 18 – 30 August

The theme this year has been designed to attract attention and stimulate discussion of what '…home…' means to the diverse community of Australia in an ever changing cultural, economic and political climate.

The judging panel consisted of 5 judges from the art industry, where approximately 50 works will be selected to be included in the exhibition. The Judging Criteria is based on three areas:

1. Response to the theme of '…home…'
2. Creativity of expression
3. Application of technique'
