This year, a local Braidwood business, Cortona Resources, is offering an acquisitive award of $1,000 for an art quilt at the Braidwood Quilt Event with the theme
“We are Australian”.
As well as this acquisitive award, there is the usual $200 prize for viewers’ choice at the indoor exhibition (the main competition, which is open from the official opening on the Friday night, to the end of the day on the Sunday), plus an additional $200 prize for the viewers’ choice winner of the outdoor exhibition (the Airing of the Quilts which is held on the Saturday only). There are some other cash prizes on offer as well, plus the usual other kinds of prizes for various categories.
The deadline for receipt of entry forms is Monday October 24, 2011, and the quilts must be received by Monday November 14, 2011.
The actual Braidwood Quilt Event runs from the evening of Friday November 25 (6 pm for the official opening, till about 7:30 pm), to Sunday November 27.
