ENTRIES are now open for the 2013 QT Ipswich Art Awards.

The Ipswich Art Awards is among the top prize-giving art exhibitions in Queensland and over the past 12 years has cemented itself into the position of being the first major event of the Ipswich Festival calendar.

Works are received from artists throughout South-east Queensland as well as Northern New South Wales each year. It has attracted attention from as far away as South Australia, Western Australia and North Queensland.

With the event taking a strong hold on the imagination of the local arts community as well as appealing to visitors to the Ipswich Festival, we see the Art Awards adding to the lifestyle and recognition of Ipswich, presenting it as a dynamic and creative city in which to live.

The QT Ipswich Art Awards include a 10-day exhibition, running from April 25 until May 4, with all displayed works available for sale.
