The Primary School Art Competition is now closed for entries.’
Come along to Victoria's Multicultural Festival on Saturday 25 March at Fed Square to hear about the work of our young finalists.
Almost half of all Victorian residents are either born overseas or have at least one parent who born overseas.
Inspired by our state’s amazing diversity, the theme for this year’s Primary School Art Competition is:
What’s Your Multicultural Story?’
The competition engages younger Victorians to think about our diversity and about how this year’s theme is relevant to them.
Budding young artists and filmmakers have been encouraged to interpret the theme in a way that tells their unique story, as well as our collective narrative as a community.
Entries have been received in three age groups:
• Prep – Year 1
• Year 2 – Year 4
• Year 5 – Year 6
Finalists will be announced in each age group across three categories:
• Drawing and painting
• Short films
