Clay Gulgong 2018 to host inaugural K-12 Competition

We are thrilled to announce that Clay Gulgong 2018 will host the inaugural K-12Competition, a juried ceramic competition for Australian students from Kindergarten through to Grade 12. To launch this exciting and new national competition, we have invited a select number of public and private schools to submit entries from their bestand brightest ceramics students.

Designed to show case the breadth of young ceramics talent in the country, the competition is intended to run in conjunction with the Clay Gulgong Ceramics Festival. Future K-12 competitions will include an expanding selection of participating schools, with a view to ultimately, opening the competition to all public and private schools.

We welcome any expressions of interest to be included in future K-12 competitions. For further information please contact Bernadette on editor@mansfieldceramics.com
