A boosted prize pool and a change in entry categories have been confirmed for the Rotary Easter Art Show in 2014.
Committee vice president and publicity officer Sylvie Munson said the changes come under the direction of a new organising committee.
Edward River Art Society organising group members are Mrs Munson, president Jan Harris and member Chris Whitehouse, and Deniliquin Rotary representatives are Tim Nolan, Anthony Erickson, Neville Ladson and minute secretary Anita Nolan.
Mrs Munson said the total prize pool had been increased by $2000 for 2014, and that cash prizes for each entry section have been bumped up.
Among the new categories is one specifically to commemorate Deniliquin’s newest Easter event – the Deniliquin Blues & Roots Festival.
‘‘We have exciting confirmation of an increase in prize money to a total prize pool of $12,000,’’ Mrs Munson said.
‘‘The three acquisitive prizes have jumped from $1500 each to $1750 each.
‘‘The Local Art prize pool has also been increased – first prize $500, second prize $300 and third prize $200 – and the viewers’ choice prize has increased to $150.
‘‘The big change is that we no longer have individual sections for oils and acrylic, water colour or pastels. Instead works in various media will be in each section unless specified.’’
The 2014 Rotary Easter Art Show will be held at Deniliquin High School, in the multi-purpose hall, from Friday, April 18 to Monday, April 21.
The new categories for 2014, and the associated prizemoney, are:
