Shoalhaven City Council is encouraging residents to nominate a local artist for one of two awards in their annual Shoalhaven Australia Day Awards.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley explained the two categories Outstanding Emerging Artists and Outstanding Contribution to Arts and Culture offer an opportunity to recognise some of the creatives in our community.
“From visual artists to digital artists, writers to performers, these award categories aim to give the most creative souls in our community a boost of confidence,” Clr Findley said.
“The Outstanding Emerging Artist is open to all ages and includes artists of all types while the Outstanding Contribution to Arts and Culture category is open to both artists and non-artists in our community.
“I know art has played an important role for many in our community particularly in times of healing after the black summer bushfires or to bring some joy during COVID lockdown and I encourage anyone who has admired an artist from afar to nominate them today.
Visit Council’s website today to nominate today. Nominations close on Friday 26 November 2021.
