THINGS TO CONSIDER

Any works over 30kgs or 2 cubic meters should be highlighted to our Waste 2 Art

Co-ordinator, and will need to be submitted as a photograph for Regionals.

Think soft plastics, bubble wrap, boxes, manufacturing and consumerism. While entries don’t always need to fit the theme, we encourage you to use this theme to build awareness and educate on the sustainability within this area.
