UNESAP 2020

May 18 @ 8:00 am - June 15 @ 5:00 pm

CALLING OUT TO SCHOOL-AGED YOUNG PEOPLE AND THEIR TEACHERS! IT IS TIME TO PREPARE WORK FOR SUBMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY NEW ENGLAND STUDENT ART PRIZE (UNESAP) 2020 …

The success of UNESAP has built steadily over the past sixteen years with a fantastic and overwhelming response from schools. UNESAP and the Let’s Hang It! Exhibition has become an enthusiastic part of the annual calendar for many schools throughout Regional NSW (from the Hunter/Central Coast, New England, North Coast and Western NSW regions).

Any school within these regions can submit art works to UNESAP on behalf of its students and the number of entries from each school is not limited.

COVID19 restrictions have impacted NERAM and the museum is currently closed to the public. However we are determined to still facilitate UNESAP with an on-line exhibition and some changes to the submission process.

2020 UNESAP Entry Form

An Entry Form needs to be completed by each student, parent and teacher and be sent to NERAM attached to the artworks that are submitted for entry by the class teacher.

This year the submission date for works is from 18 May to 15 June 2020.

 

The new method for delivery of entries will be as follows:

  • Artwork to be photographed by student/family member
    Landscape or portrait orientation to match work, up to 5MB, jpeg
  • Jpeg files to be named using the following protocol:
    • Year of School_Surname_First Initial_Title of Work
    • e.g. Yr8_Hungerford_B_My House
  • School to collate all entries and completed entry forms
    • Entry forms to be titled the same as the jpegs 

The selection process will take place remotely and schools will be notified of any finalists. Finalists’ works will then need to be posted or delivered to NERAM to be professionally photographed for the online exhibition.

Details regarding the publishing of the online exhibition and announcement of the award-winners will be confirmed shortly. If you have any questions, concerns or want to discuss the new developments, then please contact NERAM’s Curator, Belinda Hungerford, via email exhibitions@neram.com.au or phone 02 6772 5255.

The four First Prize winning artworks will become part of the University of New England’s permanent art collection and will be on display throughout the University campus.

All entered artworks, apart from the four first place winning works, will be returned to schools by mail after the exhibition is over. Local schools can arrange to drop works off to NERAM and collect returned works in person.

This is an important time to celebrate and participate in the arts and we hope that we receive many entries from across the region.

For more information contact NERAM on 02 6772 5255 or email exhibitions@neram.com.au

This program is produced in partnership with the University of New England.
