2019/20 Competition

2019 Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competitions, Exhibitions and Judging

These competitions should be held according to the timetable of each participating host Local Government Council or other hosting organisation.

The only timing limitation to hosting a 2019 Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competitions, Exhibitions and Judging is that in order for their qualifying Artists and Artworks to progress through to the 2020 Regional and State rounds, these Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competitions must be held between July 1st to December 31st, 2019.

The Paint4Freedom Art Competition is a National Art Competition consisting where possible, of four levels of competition being Local Community (Local Government / Council territory) / Regional / State / National Competitions, Exhibitions and Finals Judging.

  • Local Community Competition geographic zones are based Local Government / Council territories-

    • Our aim is a Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competition run in each Local Government / Council territory.
    • We believe the best outcome in each Local Government / Council territory is that the Local Government Council will work with any Local Galleries and/or Art Societies to assist and encourage local Amateur and Budding Amateur (15-18 yrs) Painting Artists to enter their Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competition.

  • Local Community Paint4Freedom Competitions will ideally be held in Local Government / Council venues and where not available for whatever reason, local community halls, local galleries or art societies become Venue Host Partners based on participation interest and venue availability.

  • Entries for Local Community Paint4Freedom Competitions can be accepted from Amateur and Budding Amateur (15-17 yrs) Painting Artists only. - Emerging and Established Artists will enter the competition at the National Level with dates for the 2019/20 National Level to be announced mid 2019.

  • Each Paint4Freedom Competition level will send the first three place getters in each category to the next competition level, which for Local Community Paint4Freedom Competition place getters, will be to either the Regional or State Level depending on the number of Local Community Paint4Freedom Competitions hosted within their region and state.
