ARTZ BLITZ 2024

Returning to Kingston Arts this summer, Artz Blitz is a 24-hour creative writing and visual arts competition open to artists and writers of all ages and abilities.

The annual competition is a vibrant community celebration and creative platform, encouraging emerging and established creatives to submit original works within a fast-paced 24-hour competition format.

This year the excitement escalates with the introduction of several new features including a Creator Studio, a Travelling Exhibition and a new short-form poetry category.

HOW IT WORKS
