Volcano Art Prize

The LEAD Group Inc.

International Environmental
Digital Image Competition

   Elizabeth and the Volcano - Lead White by Tony LennonLead-Safe World CALENDAR 2013

“In our lead-safe future, the only source of lead in air, will be volcanoes.”

‘Elizabeth and the Volcano - Lead White’
by Tony Lennon, non-lead oil painting on canvas

Volcano Art Prize (VAP) is an annual digital image competition for environmental art organised by The LEAD Group – an environmental health charity - in which 12 winning entries will be chosen to illustrate a Lead-Safe World CALENDAR (which also serves as an Art Prize Catalogue) to be sold to raise money for lead-awareness.

Mr. Julian Wrigley, artist and art teacher at Moriah College, Sydney will be the sole judge of the 2012 competition and Julian will consult with Elizabeth O’Brien, President of The LEAD Group, on whether the artwork accurately illustrates the lead-safety theme chosen by the artist.

The Volcano Art Prize has a number of suggested lead-safety themes based around how to be lead-safe and prevent lead exposure, despite lead-containing artists materials, widespread lead contamination of old buildings, and our environment generally.

All artists must enter a digital image which addresses a lead-safety theme, though you are permitted to create your own lead-safety theme. The lead-safety theme is part of your entry so it is recommended that before creating your own lead-safety theme, or start working on your entry, you should read the suggested themes carefully and view “previous winners”. If you are new to the issue of lead poisoning prevention, or want more ideas, you can also read The LEAD Group’s extensive website at www.lead.org.au . Young artists and their teachers can “Like” our Volcano Art Prize FACEBOOK fan page, in order to download some very useful tips on creating an image for this competition.

As soon as an entry which complies with the Conditions is uploaded to www.volcanoartprize.com/peopleschoice, it can be “Liked” by anyone wishing to vote for the People’s Choice award. Any one person can only “Like” an entry once, though you can “Like” more than one entry.

In addition to the $100 cash prize for the People’s Choice Award, the entry with the most “Likes” will be printed on the Cover of the 2014 Lead-Safe World CALENDAR.

Up to 36 digital images will be pre-selected by the judge from entries, and be displayed at a launch at NSW Parliament House on Monday 22 October 2012 at 2:30 – 3:30pm. Prizes to the value of $1300 will be shared between the 12 winners and one Peoples Choice winner.
