A4Art 2024 Finalists Announced

A4Art 2024 Finalists Announced!

The 2024 A4Art Prize has once again sparked a surge of creativity across our six St Agnes’ Parish Schools, with over 480 participants – representing more than 10% of the student body – contributing to the event, marking yet another year of growth.

The caliber of artworks in this year’s competition is truly outstanding. We’ve witnessed a diverse array of genres, from painting and drawing to origami, digital art, and 3D works, each accompanied by thoughtful artist statements. It’s remarkable to see such a wide range of creativity stemming from a humble A4 sheet of paper.

After careful consideration by expert judges, 143 finalists have been chosen across 14 categories spanning from Kindergarten to Year 12, along with a special category for St Agnes’ Education Staff. This number includes artworks that have also been chosen as Packing Room Finalists, a category created to highlight outstanding pieces that may not have made it to the finalist stage but were recognized by the Creative Arts Nest Team.

All finalist artworks will be featured in the A4Art Pop-Up Exhibition, visiting each of the St Agnes’ Parish Schools during Term 2. Visitors will have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award during the exhibition. Furthermore, the artworks will be showcased at ArtWalk 2024 on June 7th in the Creative Arts Nest Tent at PMQ Town Green.

428 artworks have been shortlisted and are now available for viewing online. Community members can cast their votes for the Community Choice Award at www.artsnest.com.au/submission_2024.

Category and award winners will be announced at the Finalist Awards Night on June 17th, with all winners having their pieces displayed at the Wauchope Creative Hub Art Gallery post-event.
