Each year, hundreds of visual artists from across Victoria take part in a variety of competitions from visual, literary and digital arts mediums.
Lens Mist Photography Award and Exhibition offers a rewarding $5,000 for Best Photograph, $2,000 for People's Choice Award, $500 for Junior Best Photograph and $250 for the Voter's Award.
Applications open Monday 21 November 2016 - Monday 23 January 2017. All finalists will be exhibited at the Mordialloc Food, Wine and Music Festival and DFO Moorabbin in March 2017.
Each year Kingston Arts welcomes artists of all ages and abilities to enter our most exciting visual art, digital art and creative writing competition. Artz Blitz is an adrenaline pumping, heart-racing creative challenge that is enjoyed by over 100 visual and digital artists and creative writers each year.
The creative chaos ensues when the secret theme is announced on Friday night and visual artists have 24-hours from this point to create their artwork and deliver it to the Kingston Arts Centre in Moorabbin by 6pm the following day. Creative writers will get their chance one week later when their secret image is sent to them soon after the exhibition opening on the Sunday and writers then have 24 hours to submit their piece. We love it and so will you!
Applications open soon.

Secret theme revealed Friday 5 August, 5pm
Artworks submitted Saturday 6 August, 5-6pm
