Guidelines for Submissions
Clay Gulgong is excited to continue its celebration of student ceramic works from Years K-12 across Australia. With all the uncertainties and limitations of the COVID restrictions, Clay Gulgong 2022 will be exhibiting works from students in a digital showcase.
We are inviting teachers to submit photographs of student ceramic works from K-12. These images will be exhibited as a continuous digital presentation as part of the shop front displays of works in the Gulgong township. This exhibition will be complemented by a selection of K-12 student works that will be displayed as part of this K-12 shop front trail.
The digital presentation will also be able to be viewed on the Clay Gulgong and Mansfield Ceramics website.
The digital presentation will be curated by the Clay Gulgong team. If photographs or slides do not comply with the guidelines, it may not be possible to include these.
