CANCELLED: 2020 #shoWcAse in Pixels

CANCELLED: 2020 #shoWcAse in Pixels

In view of measures to combat COVID-19 which includes social distancing legislation,  the decision has been made to cancel this year’s #shoWcAse in Pixels Competition. WALGA will be looking at the possibility of holding it at the end of this year. This decision will be made at the beginning of School Term 3 (mid-July 2020). All Councils will be informed once this decision is made.

For further information  please email PR Assistant Brenda Law-Yat or call on 9213 2085.

The annual exhibition of artwork from Local Governments will be displayed on the iconic 45-metre high digital tower at the heart of Yagan Square in Perth City, from Monday, 27 July to Sunday, 9 August.

This format of display means our participants are no longer restricted to PVC canvas - creativity is encouraged.

As one of the State’s largest ongoing community arts projects, this event is widely acknowledged as being one of the most colourful and vibrant displays throughout the year, and we are very appreciative of the support provided by Screenwest for this year’s competition.

Traditionally (until 2018), the artwork, in the form of physical banners, were hung on the poles along St Georges and Adelaide Terraces. Since 2019, WALGA has the opportunity to display the digital artwork designs on the Yagan Square Digital Tower Screens.

The categories are:
  • Junior Primary (pre-primary to Year 3)
  • Upper Primary (Year 4 - 6)
  • Secondary (Year 7 - 12)
  • Community groups/ amateur artist(s)/ Non-Professional
  • Professional/Digitally Designed Artwork
WALGA can only accept entries from Local Governments - please approach your local Council if you are not a Local Government staff member.

Upon confirmation from Screenwest in July, WALGA will post the screening time of the artworks on this page.

The winners of the 2020 #shoWcAse in Pixels art competition will be announced at the first session of the WA Local Government Convention 2020 on Thursday, 6 August.
