How do I enter my work?
Come along on one of the submission days; Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th of September 10am – 3pm, fill out a registration form, pay the fee of $15 per artwork and you’re in.
What if my work is really big, heavy or complicated, can I still enter it?
There are no specific limits on works, but they need to be able to fit into the Arts Centre and to be handled by people rather than lifting equipment. So if you’re not sure, contact the organisers using the email listed below, please supply a contact phone number so we can discuss it with you. It is our aim to enable entries to be accepted where-ever possible.
What if I used to live in the Braidwood/Bungendore region but I’m now studying or working away from the area, can I still enter?
If you attended school or have lived in the 2621 or 2622 postcode areas, and you fit into one of the relevant age categories, then you can still enter your work.
Does my work have to be for sale?
No it doesn’t, if you want to keep your work mark that section of the registration form with NFS-Not for sale. If you do want to make your work available for sale you must set a price but remember that price will include the 20% commission that BRAG will charge you if your work sells.
Why does BRAG charge a 20% commission on sales?
BRAG – The Braidwood Regional Arts Group is a volunteer organization and the commission charged on artwork sales helps fund the Community Arts Centre operations and events like the Youth Art Awards.
I will be away on the weekend of the submissions for the Awards; can I leave my work at the Art Centre some other time?
No other time is available for submissions but you can arrange for someone else to deliver your artwork for you, with the registration form & payment.
I will be away the night of the exhibition opening & award ceremony; if I’m nominated for an award will I still get it?
Yes, those who have won an award will be notified by phone but not told which award they have won, you can send someone on your behalf to receive the award.
