About the Art Show
We again have the fantastic support of community businesses in the Birregurra and Colac district who have generously contributed to the Art Show. The Birregurra Art Show Prize of $4,000 is given to art work judged best in show whilst first prizes of $500 and second prizes of $250 are given to works judged best in their category.

We are pleased to announce that Irrewarra Sourdough is again offering an additional prize of $4000 to be chosen from the category winners.
The Art Show is of valuable community benefit, contributing over $9000 every year to community based art projects, with recent focus on fostering young talent at the Birregurra school.
The seven exhibition categories are:
We exhibit around 300 entries, but every year we are oversubscribed. If you are an artist, please get your entries in as soon as you can.
