Were you planning on entering the saso.creative Phantom Downunder Art Prize, but missed getting your entry form in before the February 17 deadline? Well, ChronicleChamber has some good news - the deadline has been extended!
As we reported earlier this month, artists young and old are invited to submit their Phantom creations to The Bunker Cartoon Gallery. Two winning artists will have their artwork join the Phantom Art Show exhibition for the duration of its stay in Coffs Harbour.
All other entries will also be on public display from 14 March - 8 April in a 'Phantom Walk' popup gallery display on Harbour Drive, before being moved to Coffs Central from 9 April - 8 May, 2017.
Entries do need to meet the theme The Phantom and the Australian Experience and of course, fit into the general style of the Art show - i.e. demonstrate a connection to the earliest incarnations of The Phantom as drawn by Ray Moore and Wilson McCoy.
Besides the obvious glory of having their work displayed, the winning artists will also score the added bonus of the $1200 first prize in the Open category, with $300 on offer for Under-18s. The winners will be announced at the official opening of the Phantom Art Show, 6pm Friday, 10 March, 2017 at The Bunker Cartoon Gallery.
All terms and conditions are outlined in the entry form - download this below. As mentioned though, you can disregard the stated date for lodging of the entry forms. Margaret Cameron, Manager of The Bunker Cartoon Gallery, has confirmed that the forms can be submitted no later than 3rd March, with the artworks required to arrive ready-to-hang/ready-to-display by 7th March.
Hopefully the extension will allow for many more artists to get creating and for the team in Coffs Harbour to bring together a sensational Phantom Walk!
