The bottom left is a drawing of Richardson’s Beach at Coles Bay, while the other three are of the coastline near Sisters Beach on Tasmania’s Northwest Coast.
This week I have completed and posted my entry forms for The Glover Prize 2011 and Waterways. The former is Australia’s richest prize for a landscape painting, while the latter is a new art prize that is being held in conjunction with the Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart during February.
This year I have entered two drawings in the Glover Prize. It took me quite awhile to complete my entries as there is a deal of documentation to be done. The requirements are quite justified when one considers the status of this award.
Entry forms need to be studied carefully before the required details are added. It is a good idea to have a check list (some prizes actually print a list on their entry forms) and make sure that you strictly adhere to the dates given and the framing requirements, which can vary from one award to another.
Whatever the outcome, I am glad I have entered these awards. It does one good to be challenged now and then!
