In 2018, the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery inaugurates a new prize category for the Hedland Art Awards: ‘We Hedland Insta-Postcard Prize’ at the October 13 West End Markets. 

Collect a custom-made blank postcard from the Port Hedland Courthouse Gallery – or email us at mail@courthousegallery.com.au and we’ll send some out to you – and create your own artwork on it. Post to Instagram and tag @courthousegallery and hashtag #welovehedland2018  

Ten (10) artworks will be selected by a cross-section of the Hedland community on November 13, 2018 and reposted to the Courthouse Gallery Instagram for a period of one week. The three works that receive the most amount of Instagram “likes” during the one-week period ending Tuesday 20 November, 2018 will be crowned the winners.  

The winners will have their artwork professionally reprinted in a limited edition run to be sold at the Courthouse Gallery shop in time for Christmas; as well as 50 copies of their postcard for their own use. The winner will receive a bulk prize money proportionate to the design license and royalties owing on 100 x postcards sold.  

The We Hedland Insta-Postcard Prize is designed to encourage those who want to “give it a go” and celebrate inclusivity in the arts. View full terms and conditions here.
