Entries to close for youth art exhibition

By Shepparton News

Entries for a youth art exhibition, which opens at Shepparton's library on Friday, close at 5pm on Wednesday.

This year people are being asked to submit original artwork in response to 'What does identity mean to me?’ with a 50 to 100 word piece.

Goulburn Murray CVGT’s transition to work manager Angela Randall said the event was an opportunity for young people to "share their creativity with the community and receive recognition for their talents".

She said it celebrated the diverse talent of young people and aimed to generate awareness of the transition to work service while boosting engagement with youth and their families and helping young people understand how they can get assistance.

Entry is free for people aged between 13 and 21 who live in the Greater Shepparton region.

All original artworks of A3 size or smaller, as well as written and digital art, will be accepted. If artwork is larger or is three-dimensional, then a good quality printed photograph or series of photographs is acceptable.

Entries will be exhibited at the Shepparton library on Friday when there will be $1000 worth of prizes available.
