   held at Immanuel Lutheran College, A. J. Jericho Stadium, Wises Road, Buderim

    licensed event and therefore children are unable to attend. Parents are welcome to purchase tickets to attend.

    months and must be the property of the artist.

Artists are liable for their works during transit to and from the A.J. Jericho Stadium. If a student is concerned about the security of their entry, they should contact the Festival Convenor. It is a condition of insurance that all artists register their work and expected value on the Entry Form; especially fragile works or works requiring special handling must be indicated to the convenor.
2D Works must be at least A4 size and no more than 1.5m wide or tall when mounted. 3D Works must not exceed 50kg and must not exceed 1.5m in any dimension. Works must be suitable for safe indoor gallery display and must not be site specific. The Festival Committee retains the right to not display work. All 2D works must be securely mounted.

Entries must be mounted on either black or white cardboard. Work under glass or on stretched canvas must have a wire or cord securely attached to allow the picture to be hung on a hook. All work must be completely clean and dry when delivered; including appropriate coverage of inkjet photographic prints to stop ink transfer. All 3D works must be stable and suitable for display. Work that is not mounted or not considered sturdy enough for display may not be exhibited.

The student’s name, year level at school, title of the artwork and selling price must be clearly marked on the back (hanging work) or bottom (standing work). Work which the student does not wish to sell must be clearly labelled ‘Not for Sale’.

All works are to be delivered to the A.J. Jericho Stadium on Sunday 15 May between 2.00pm and 5.00pm. An email will be sent closer to the event and you will be asked to nominate your preferred drop-off time. No late deliveries will be accepted. No works may be removed prior to the conclusion of the Festival.

Student Film entries must be delivered to the Main Office at Immanuel Lutheran College by 3.30pm on Friday 6 May on a USB and in an envelope with your name clearly marked on the front. An entry form should be completed online prior to 19 April 2022.

Unsold works must be collected on Sunday 22 May between 3.00pm and 5.00pm. As the stadium must be emptied on Monday 23 May, any work not collected will be at risk of being damaged as workmen will be moving in and out. The Festival Committee will not pay for damage to work that occurs after 6.00pm on Sunday 22 May (unless prior arrangement has been made with the Festival Convenor for a later collection). All expenses related to the forwarding, packaging, repackaging and returning of works (with the exception of packaging sold works) that have not been collected by this time will be borne by the artist.

The winner will be the Best Short Film as per the judging criteria, regardless of age. Films should be from 1-8 minutes long and must be submitted by Friday 6 May on a USB. Films must be classified with an appropriate viewer rating (i.e. G, PG, M15+). The judge will assess each film against the criteria below:
Cinematography – Picture composition, shot style, use of light or surroundings
Technical – Camera use, sound quality, use of music/FX, editing, props and costume
Story – Engaging, comprehensible, suitability to age category and use of characters
