We are looking for inspirational projects that will be executed within the residency time frame.

Two Winners of the Awards will each receive (4) free weeks of BigCi residency and $4,000 prize money.
The winning artists will have an opportunity to explore the Wollemi, the Blue Mountains and the Gardens of Stone National Parks on guided walks and will be given research assistance relevant to their projects. At the end of their residencies, they will present their work at a BigCi Open Day event.
The Awards will be judged by an independent panel, to be announced shortly.
There is an entry fee of $35, which must be paid at the time of sending the submission. Entry fees are not refundable.
