ENTRIES are now open for the City of Greater Bendigo’s 2018 RAW Arts Awards.
RAW supports and celebrates the creativity of young artists aged 25 and younger, living in Greater Bendigo.
RAW began in 1997 with the RAW View Youth Arts Festival, including awards for visual arts and writing. A short film award was introduced in 2001 and the performing arts scholarship in 2003.
In the last 10 years RAW has attracted over 800 entries, and has been a platform for young artists, many of whom are now practising professionals.
The awards are offered across four categories: Visual Arts, Literature, Performing Arts and Digital Media, with prizes of $1,000 and $250 awarded for each section.
Winners will be announced by Mayor Margaret O’Rourke on Thursday May 17. An exhibition of all entries will be held from May 17 to 20 at Dudley House and The Capital.
Entries close on Monday April 23.
