Waste to Art

Entries are now open for the 2023 Waste to Art Competition, where we challenge you to transform common waste items into stunning works of art!

The competition is free to enter for all ages! Plus we have a prize pool of $3,500 up for grabs thanks to our competition sponsors.

The competition aims to challenge our perception of waste and look more closely at what we are throwing away to see if it can be reused, repurposed, or upcycled rather than ending up in landfill.


  • Entries open: Thursday 20 July, 2023.
  • Entries close: Monday 16 October, 2023.
  • Exhibition: 17 November, 2023 to 7 January, 2024 at Gatakers Artspace, Maryborough. 

Please read the competition flyer to learn more about artwork specifications and terms and conditions of entry


PLEASE NOTE: Because of the popularity of the competition, there have been some changes to the entry requirements, including a limit of one entry per person and schools limited to five entries per school.

Thank you to our competition sponsors
