There are a number of prize categories including the Bell Bay Award for Excellence, the Premier's Choice award, (chosen by the Premier herself), Two Zonta Awards for Highly Commended and Young Emerging Artist and a People's Choice award. You have until April 30 to enter if you wish to be an exhibitor. Entry Forms are available on request from the Moonah Arts Centre or may be downloaded from the Tasmanian Regional Arts Website.
