Rules & Guidelines
What? Art has no rules! Go crazy.
But ideally the work should reflect what the co-op is about. If you don’t know what the Food Co-op is about, it’s just food (sustainable, local, healthy food), and a co-operative community (a sustainable, local, healthy community).
If you can also depict somehow that the Food Co-op is open to everyone and not just members, that would be great. And you may also include the logo (or your interpretation of it), the location of the Co-op, and/or the opening hours of the shop and cafe if you wish. But none of this is necessary. We will create a logo strip with opening hours and location to add to the winning entries.
The work can be physical or digital – paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, prints etc. If you’d like to make something in 3D, you’re most welcome and you can submit via photo or in person.
What can you win?
All entries will be showcased on the Food Co-op website, where the public will be able to vote on their favourites throughout August. The winner of the popular vote will receive $200 in Food Co-op vouchers! There will also be prizes for the second most popular and judge’s choice (as voted by the Member Committee), a FREE MEMBERSHIP – worth $50 and then some if you actively volunteer for a further discount!
A number of entries will also be chosen and used in poster drives and online campaigns to promote the Food Co-op. So by entering, you could see your art out and about in Canberra.
How to submit
Entries are open NOW and must be submitted by July 31, 2015. Submit via email to email@example.com with FOOD COOP ART CONTEST 2015 in the subject title, or you can even drop off something in real life at the co-op. Just see the manager or friendly co-op member behind the desk.
