Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said the Prize shined a spotlight on contemporary art and grassroots talent in the City of Salisbury and beyond.

The Watershed Creative Prize, previously The Watershed Art Prize, has been running for more than a decade now, with the written and emerging technologies categories added in 2020 to include a greater scope of artistic expressions.

Artists, writers, illustrators and photographers are invited to submit their work and use their talents as an outcry to inspire a greener and more sustainable future.
