Once again a growing number of talented young artists have impressed the judges and exhibition-goers alike with the level of talent at this year’s Outside the Frame Art Awards.

More than 70 entries were received, with works by Year 11 and 12 students from schools across metropolitan Perth, to exhibit at this year’s Awards held from 12 to 20 August, at Armadale District Hall.

Mayor Henry Zelones OAM, JP said that this year’s competition attracted a high calibre of entries, making it difficult for the judges to select the winning pieces.

“Once again the competition has attracted entries that have impressed the judges with the level of innovation and skill, and have used their talent to express the issues that affect them in their young lives such as global politics.

“The City is committed to providing young people in the community with the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and opinions to the community.

This year’s exhibition featured artworks from 17 schools across Perth. Award winners received art books related to their medium of choice and an art supplies voucher to encourage them to continue to develop their skills.

Canning Vale College was awarded $1000 for the School with the Best Collective Art works award.
