Castaways Sculpture Awards 2017 Entries Now Open

Entries are now open for the 2017 Castaway Sculpture Awards, which will be held along the Rockingham Foreshore from 28 October to 5 November 2017.

Castaways Sculpture Awards is an annual art competition that has been running since 2008. The Awards combines the theme of recycling and environmental awareness with the creative re-use of materials and innovative sculpture. 

The Castaways Sculpture Awards highlights two areas of great importance to the City: providing and supporting arts and cultural opportunities for residents; and raising the profile of recycling and environmental sustainability.
