Lillipilli exhibition is now open for entries

WOOLGOOLGA'S Lillipilli Art Exhibition is edging ever closer.

For almost 30 years, Woolgoolga Art Group has organised and run the renowned Lillipilli Art & Craft Competition.

The competition boasts prize money of around $6000 and draws entries from all over NSW and even interstate. Experienced judges assess the works in each category, an overall champion is also declared and in recent years awarding of a packers' prize and a people's choice prize have added to the excitement of the competition.

In earlier years the exhibition of competition entries was located in Coffs Harbour, but in 2013 the Lillipilli moved home to Woolgoolga's own gallery and moved to the month of September.

During Lillipilli, the gallery turns itself over to the competition and a first class exhibition of paintings, drawings, photography, woodwork, fibre craft, ceramics and other media results. All competition entries are for sale during the exhibition which runs from September 6 to October 6 during the school holidays.

Closing date for entries is August 1. Click here for entry forms.

The official opening will take place at the gallery in Turon Pde on September 1.
