Calling young artists who live or study in Hobsons Bay or who are library members.
Drawn by the Bay is your opportunity to win one of the western suburbs’ biggest illustration prizes.

Young illustrators (Prep to Year 12) are invited to submit their original, book-inspired artwork – entries can be in any medium, up to A3 size with the artwork inspired by a book of your choice.

With $1,000 in cash and other prizes on offer, as well as the chance to have your work published, don’t miss out.
