Organised by the James Scott Decorative Arts Society (JSDAS) committee – the NEAC Festival welcomes submissions of work from across Tasmania, from new and returning artists.



The Judges "Coming Home" prize is $1000 cash, and the Viewers Choice prize is $750.


The exhibition runs from the 11th to the 14th of June. All submissions must be received by 6pm Thursday the 27th of May, 2021. Click the button below for full details!
