‘Marine Visions’ - Open Medium Art Competition

Marine Visions Art Competition

Retrospect Gallery in association with the Byron Underwater Festival is hosting the second inaugural ‘Marine Visions’ Art Competition and Exhibition.

Not to be confused with the ‘Underwater Photo and Video Shootout Competition’, this is a fantastic opportunity to display and sell your work over the course of the festival and be in the running to win over $3000 of great prizes including cash, a full PADI Open Water Course, framing and printing and much more.

Our team of professional judges including the Echo’s Jeff Dawson, Lismore Regional Art Gallery Curator Stephen Alderton (T.B.C.), Candy Baker from Arts Northern Rivers, Mathieu Meur and the festival organisers Tim & Wandy Hochgrebe.

We announced the winners on Friday the 2nd of May at a lively exhibition launch held between Retrospect Gallery and Bo’s Café, 52 Jonson St Byron Bay.
