Young Artists
shine at awards

by Cameron Outridge

The Hinterland Young Artists’ Competition 2004 was opened on Saturday 12th June by Mr Ken Hinds to an audience of young artists, parents, teachers and notable community identities.

This year’s judges, Elizabeth Duguid, Rosemary Almberg (double Prize winner at this year’s Maleny Art Awards), Nan Paterson (winner of the major Portrait Prize at this years’s Maleny Art Awards), Janna Pameijer and Donald Greenfield were challenged by 79 entries from hinterland young artists.

Prizes were awarded at the well attended function in the Maleny RSL Hall by Official Patron of the event, Mr Ken Hinds.

This event is an intiative of the Maleny Arts Council Inc., supported by Caloundra City Council, Apex Maleny, Maleny RSL and many private donations.
