Artists enter from all around Victoria and Southern NSW. Works are of a high standard and winners are judged in a variety of categories by art experts from the region. Total prize money of $9,250 on offer. An overall "Best In Show"painting is awarded each year and it is a highly contested prize worth $2,500.
