ARTISTS AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LAND FESTIVAL
In 2006, when the Spirit of the Land Festival began, farmers were encouraged to use their skills to enter a farm art sculpture competition. The Festival has grown over this time and other exhibitions were added, to now include Fine Arts Painting and Photography.
FINE ARTS PAINTING
SPIRIT OF THE LAND AND ITS PEOPLE
We are looking for art works that celebrate the spirit of the land, its people, flora, fauna, and lifestyle of living on the land, and their important connection to each other.
This is an open section and may depict subject matter of the artist’s choice.
This section is open to indigenous artists whose work celebrates the spirit of the land, its people, flora and fauna.
SPIRIT OF THE LAND PHOTOGRAPHY, AUSTRALIAN SPIRIT OF THE LAND
We are looking for striking photographic prints encompassing landscape, portrait, and people in our landscape, and image that best captures ‘Australian Spirit of the Land’.
