Art Competition

Belonging – Place and Home


The Winterfest Art Competition is a showcase of local artists from Bundanoon and the immediate area.  Bundanoon has a unique sense of place and belonging for all residents and that sense of belonging is reflected in this year’s theme.

The competition is open across three categories, with the artists’ work being displayed at the Bundanoon Club during the weekend of Winterfest.

To enter simply complete the entry form and delivery your entry to the Bundanoon Club on the dates and times listed below.

All entrants, family and friends are invited to the Exhibition Opening on 30th June 2023 at 6pm at the Bundanoon Club.  Entry is a gold coin donation.  Light refreshments will be served, and we will announce the Judges’ Choice Winners.

THeme: "Belonging - Place and home"

"Belonging" and that sense of place, time and home is the theme of the 2023 Bundanoon Winterfest Art Competition.  “Belonging” was chosen because Bundanoonians have a very strong sense of place - there is a saying that "you don't chose Bundanoon, Bundanoon choses you.

We ask all entrants to consider their sense of “Belonging” and create their work to reflect this theme and to supply a narrative to their work.
