Advocate Art Award 2013: The Winners

Well friends, it’s all over for another year! We trust that you were as excited about this year’s exhibition as were we.

But its success was a true partnership between you the artists who entered such a varied mix of styles and media; our committee who worked hard behind the scenes, but especially to  “Mr. Art” Steve Anderson for his vital role as co-ordinator. The exhibition relied heavily on our support from Araluen and in particular from Nathan King. Many thanks to you all.

The major “Excellence Award” to the value of $2500 was taken out by Rod Moss with his ‘Centralian Table’ made of wood, glass & paint.

Prize by the Centralian Advocate & CAAS.

It’s time to start getting your entry under way    for this year’s ‘Advocate’!


OK.. so you’re here on our blog so we guess you’re at least considering an electronic entry?  Go on .. it’s really simple! However we still have paper forms here if you’re not quite ready to take the leap!  We will also this year return to entry forms in the Centralian Advocate.  A  few of you told us you missed them last year.

First up, can we suggest that you ensure you are financial (membership lapses each year on July 1) if you wish to obtain the benefits.  Any memberships/renewals received now will carry into next year.  But membership isn’t compulsory to enter unless you are an ex-resident of Central Australia.

Make a start with your art and then come back here soon when you have settled on your work and submit your entry. You can find the details on the top drop-down menu above under the Advocate Art Award.
