Art Competition

Frost and Bloom 


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 Supper Room, Soldiers' Memorial Hall, Bundanoon for the week prior to Winterfest during the weekend of Winterfest.

To enter simply complete the entry form and deliver your entry to the Supper Room on the dates and times listed below.

All entrants, family and friends are invited to the Exhibition Opening on 01st July 2024 at 6pm at the Supper Room.  Entry is a gold coin donation.  Light refreshments will be served, and we will announce the Judges’ Choice Winners.

THeme: "Frost and Bloom"

This theme was selected by the Bundanoon Winterfest Committee to reflect the seasons that define Bundanoon.  Winter and Spring.   Bundanoon is nestled on an escapement overlooking Moreton National Park.  Due to this unique position we have an equally unique climate.  Frosty mornings give way to warm days and misty evenings with flowers that bloom even in winter when frost is on the ground.  The sense of the deep bush that surrounds us permeates our souls and is reflected in our community in everything from our gardens to our art.


We ask all entrants to consider their relationship with the seasons and create their work to reflect this theme and to supply a narrative to their work.
