Lanterns from Waste – ART Competition

Add to my plan Remove from plan

Itching for your chance to become an exhibitor at River of Art and grab a free ticket to Luminous on September 23?

Good news! Registrations are open for our Lantern ART Comp, where you design and create your own Lantern for the festival’s finale – Luminous: Celebrating Place.

Youth category ages 16 to 26:

There is $650 for the best creation, $450 for second place and $250 for the People’s Choice Award.

Open Category:

$400 for the best lantern.

Lanterns must be made from at least 50% waste materials, and there’s no need to worry about lighting – our friends at Repurposing for Resilience (RfR) will supply and install that for you.

Need a hand? Join one of the free workshops! There is one on Saturday, July 29 at the RfR workshop at Bodalla, or join the crew at Moruya’s Art Central on August 12. Registrations are required, please email

Register by September 6, entries due September 9.

Winners will be announced at Luminous on Saturday, September 23!
