Individual artists over the age of 18 and community groups are invited to submit artwork in the Open Category of the competition.

This theme is a celebration of local plant and bird species and the important relationships between them.
All entries will be exhibited in shop windows throughout the Esperance CBD in the lead-up to, and during, the Festival.
