2017 HORNSBY YOUNG ARTISTS COMPETITION INFORMATION AND ENTRY FORM This is the fourth annual Hornsby Young Artists Competition – presented by Hornsby Art Society to encourage our next generation of local artists. To stage this event, we are very grateful to our ongoing major sponsor, Sydney Art School; our framing sponsor, Jadele Framing and Uniting through Wirreanda, West Pennant Hills. This year we also welcome Hornsby Shire Council’s Remagine Exhibition, who are partnering with us to support works created using re-used man-made materials. This competition is for works on paper. Mediums used may include paint (watercolour, acrylic, oil etc) together with charcoal, pencil, crayon, collage or mixed media. This year, you may also present a work using re-used man-made materials such as waste paper, packaging, or other pre-used items that would otherwise be waste. Photographs are not accepted unless submitted as part of a collage or mixed media, and to a maximum of 50% of the total work only. All works should consider the 2017 theme of “In My World.” For all artists in the first three age categories (5 – 7 years; 8 – 11 years and 12 -15 years) all works must be presented on an A3 sheet (297mm x 420mm), unframed and unmounted. For artists in the older age category, 16 – 18 years, we have provided greater options. Your work may be up to 120cm in any direction and must be presented framed or suitably mounted. Framed artworks must be properly framed and hung by D rings and there must be no cup hooks, screw eyes or protruding metal or wire. No wet paintings will be accepted. Works on stretched canvases need not be framed, but must be presented in a neat, professional manner, with finished edges and no staples visible.

THE THEME ‘IN MY WORLD’ Each year our competition has provided entrants with a theme to focus upon. Past themes have included “Self Portrait or My Neighbourhood;” “Colour” and “Light.” For 2017 we ask young artists to consider your world – and to depict something of value to you. This could be family or friends, pets, toys or hobbies or it could be your home, your school or another favourite place.
ENTRIES We’ve designed this competition to make it easy and inexpensive for young artists to enter. For all artists under fifteen years, in the first three age categories (5 – 7 years; 8 – 11 years and 12 -15 years) works do not need to be framed or mounted: all works must be simply presented on an A3 sheet (297mm x 420mm), unframed and unmounted. Mounting of entries will be undertaken by HAS and our sponsor, Jadele Framing, as part of your entry fee and to ensure the competition has a uniform, professional look. Works are mounted and wrapped in archive quality plastic for display, which will be retained by entrants at the end of the exhibition. Artists will be able to easily frame these works after the competition using these mounts provided. Jadele Framing also offer modestly priced frames to suit these mounts and these are available at the exhibition for purchase. For artists in the older age category, 16 – 18 years we have provided greater options. We know you may already have suitably framed or mounted work or works that are not in the A3 size format. To enter these two categories your work must conform to a maximum of 120cm in any direction and must be presented framed or suitably mounted. Framed artworks must be properly framed and hung by D rings and there must be no cup hooks, screw eyes or protruding metal or wire. No wet paintings will be accepted. Works on stretched canvases need not be framed, but must be presented in a neat, professional manner, with finished edges and no staples visible.
PRIZES Prizes are awarded solely at the discretion of the independent Judge and the Judge’s decision is final. Prizes across the competition may include cash, vouchers for art supplies, terms of lessons with Sydney Art School, entry into the 2017 Remagine Competition and/or membership of the Hornsby Art Society.
