The City of Wanneroo Community Art Awards and Exhibition has been a highly-regarded annual event on the City's cultural calendar since 2001. The 2020 Awards were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions but we are very pleased to announce that it's back in 2022.
More than 150 artworks will be on show featuring a diversity of talents in the categories of Painting, Works on Paper, Sculpture and a new category: Photo, Film and Digital Media. The exhibition provides an opportunity for artists living in Western Australia to sell their artwork and take home a share of the $18,700 prize pool.
