Council Run Competitions

We encourage each Local Government Council to host and run their own Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competition, however if this is not possible due to staff shortages, we expect to have local Rotary volunteers in each council region to assist in their Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competition and if needed, to run the local competition or to assist their Local Council or Local Venue/Galleries in doing so.

Each participating L/G Council will need to facilitate the running of their Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competition during a time that suits their own schedule from July 1st through to December 31st.

We encourage those participating L/G Councils to host their Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competition over a two week period following the below format, however this is by no means mandatory and we welcome whatever format best suits each participating council.


Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competitions can accept entries from Budding Amateur (15-17 yrs) and Amateur Artists only.

We encourage each participating L/G Council to also host a Presentation Function, which if numbers are low, can be run as a light refreshment Morning or Afternoon Tea style function.

If entry numbers are higher and the facilities are available either within the council or nearby, a full Paint4Freedom Presentation Dinner might be in order.

Please download our Competition Guidelines document and an Order Form for our Local Community Competition packs, which provide some promotional clothing, caps and other items of assistance.

In cases where your L/G Council has not the funding in place to provide the normal cash prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd plces in each category, Paint4Freedom Ltd. will provide trophies for that Local Community Paint4Freedom Art Competition, These trophies must be arranged when Paint4Freedom Ltd. is notified of the dates and details. these trophies will be sent out once the Closing Date for entries has passed.
