Two Wearable Art Mandurah Categories have been given a prize boost.
At the close of the Wearable Art Mandurah Exhibition presented by Act-Belong- Commit, Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams announced that the Creative Reuse Award cash prize has been more than doubled from $1200 to $3000. He also announced that the prize for Wearable Art Mandurah Artist of the Year has been significantly bumped up from $2000 to $5000.
“These prize boosts are in line with the success and growing profile of Wearable Art Mandurah as an important item on the West Australian cultural calendar,” the Mayor said.
“This event is just one of the events that is helping put Mandurah on the map as a centre for the arts and creativity.
“I am really excited about the increase in the prize for the Creative Reuse Award. Recently council made a decision to make the City Administration free of single use plastics – and the focus of this award serves to amplify our message that we care about our beautiful Mandurah environment.
For those of you who are thinking of entering there are some workshops being run in the near future to help you on your Wearable Art Mandurah journey
