Online art competition
for people living with disability

Our National Online Art Competition was all about encouraging artists with a disability to showcase their work. 235 artists entered from across Australia, all working with the theme ‘behind the mask’. 

Emily Crockford, an emerging, neuro-diverse artist was employed to be our guest judge and said of the calibre of entries: "So much beautiful artworks. So much talent. So difficult to pick, there are so many winners!" 

Entrants were thrilled by the opportunity, such as Colin, who told us: “I have often thought of entering art into my local show but have been too shy. After the lovely experience I have had entering your virtual art competition I now have the confidence to enter some other art competitions.”   The artworks are all displayed in our online gallery for longevity.
