The FPC recently launched its Aboriginal Art Competition 2022 and is seeking Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to submit an art piece in response to the brief “what does forestry mean to you?”

All submissions will be displayed in an upcoming art show in Kalgoorlie, with the winning artist’s piece being purchased by the FPC for $2,000. The FPC will use the winning artwork as the cover of their next Reconciliation Action Plan and on other promotional items from time to time. To promote the skills of the winning artist, the FPC will credit the winning artist on items that use their design.

The FPC has plans to support artists in purchasing necessary art equipment by contributing $50 towards art supplies for the first 40 requesting entrants. This $50 contribution will cover art equipment like paint, canvas, paint brushes, graphic pencils, etc.

The competition opens on Monday 4 July 2022 and closes on Monday, 5 September 2022.

Head over to the FPC’s Aboriginal Art Competition web page to find more information, key dates, and competition guidelines.
