BigCi Environmental Awards 2015 Open for Submissions

Australian and International Artists are invited to submit entries for the BigCi Environmental Awards 2015. This year, we are offering 3 awards, each consisting of a free 3-week BigCi artist residency.

Submissions deadline is 10th of March 2015. The BigCi Environmental Awards are open to artists from various fields such as visual art, installation, multimedia, performance, literature, music, film-making and curating.

Your submission must show how you wish to respond to the environment around BigCi.

BigCi is located only 1.5 hours drive from Sydney, Australia’s biggest city, yet it is in a dramatically different world - on the edge of the Wollemi National Park in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains. This is an area of stunning scenic beauty, with its own unique flora, fauna and geomorphology.

For your project during the BigCi residency, you can choose to deal with a particular environmental issue, explore ideas and concepts related to nature, or use this opportunity to creatively respond to the unique wilderness on our doorstep.

Each Environmental Award recipient will receive 3 weeks of free residency at BigCi during a mutually agreed period of time within 12 months after receiving the Award.
