Congratulations to all of the artists selected for the 23rd Annual Surf Coast Community Arts Calendar. We had a truly spectacular field across all categories that demonstrated clearly the alchemy between ideas, experience and materials that Surf Coast artists have been handling as our access to the world continues to be constrained by COVID-19. All our winners were awarded $300 prize money.

Surf Coast Shire Mayor (Libby Stapleton), CEO (Robyn Seymour) and Arts Development Officer (Harriet Gaffney) formed the judging panel for this years competition. 

Congratulations to the following winners:

  • Romy Roache, Jewel of the sea

  • Angeline Poole, The Observer

  • Barbara Bateman, Another kind of Otway experience

  • Sue Corbet, Here comes the sun (little darling)

  • Elisa Zorraquin, From Jan Juc to Winkipop

  • Veronica Phillips, Extravagant birds

  • Kathy Harry, Xanthorrhoea

  • Emma Webb, Surfing expression

  • Sarah McLeod More, Roominating
