If you haven't already entered, there is not much time left:
Closing 13 July -  Queensland Regional Art Awards 2012

The Queensland Regional Art Awards is an annual visual arts prize and exhibition for established and emerging artists living in regional and remote Queensland. The program aims to highlight the wealth of creative talent located outside the capital city and provide a platform for further professional development.

The theme for 2012 is ‘the essential character of Queensland’. Artists can choose to reflect or reinterpret the State’s icons, which may include aspects of its diverse and distinct landscape or a depiction of unique individuals, places or landmarks that are significant to a community or the state. Artists may also choose to explore the theme by responding to recent or historic events that have shaped the State, including man-made and natural events.
