Calling all artists!

16 March 2017

It’s that wonderful time of year again! Vision Australia is calling for works from artists who are blind or have low vision to feature in our 2018 large print calendar.

At Vision Australia we support people who are blind or have low vision to live the life they choose – and that includes creating great works of art!

To be considered, you need to have produced a beautiful artwork over the last 12 months. The artwork should preferably be a painting or drawing, suitable for a decorative calendar

Each artwork that is selected to appear in the calendar will be accompanied by a profile of the artist. This profile will also be shared with local newspapers, providing a great opportunity to raise the profile of Vision Australia.

Importantly, our vibrant large print calendar also raises much needed funds that enable Vision Australia to continue to deliver support services across the nation.

So if you or someone you know has some beautifully produced artwork that would look great on a calendar, then we encourage you to submit your entry now.

The 13 successful entries will each receive a gift card to the value of $300.
