Be creative, make a difference. Paint with a Purpose

CREATING

Sub-titled ‘Paint with a Purpose’, the competition requires students to paint a single rose in a style that not only reflects their personality, but can also be used as a symbol of inspiration and hope for those suffering from cystic fibrosis. Most CF sufferers are diagnosed in their childhoods or early teens, making it especially relevant for the Prize’s age bracket.

Entrants must be in grades 7 to 12, and can paint using any painting medium their single rose artwork. The only requirement is it must be on a canvas no greater than 30.5cm x 30.5cm in size. While individual entries are welcome, art teachers are especially encouraged to bring their students on board.

DONATING

At the conclusion of the event, all artworks will be donated to CFQ and sold through a silent auction – allowing the students to make significant and generous contributions to our cause simply by creating art. A judging event, lead by our key judge the Lady Mayoress, Mrs Anne Quirk will be held on 14 September. Standout artworks will be awarded a selection of prizes for both individual and group entrants. Over $1,200 worth of prizes are up for grabs. These prizes will be awarded to the best piece of artwork under the judges’ choice category and a champions’ award for the class that raises the most money through their combined painting sales. Each entrant will also be award an individual certificate of appreciation.

WHERE WILL MY DONATION GO?

Cystic Fibrosis Queensland’s (CFQ) inaugural Rose Prize aims to be a celebration of our community, art and culture – but most importantly, a way to raise the crucial funds needed to support Queenslanders living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

The judging, followed by a viewing event will be held in Brisbane, 14 September and a judges selection of artworks will be displayed at Brisbane City Hall from 23 September to 7 October. The remaining artworks will be proudly displayed online for sale through silent online bidders. All proceeds from the sale of these artworks will fund the support services we provide to Queenslanders living with CF.

In particular, CFQ is on a mission to provide all of our members with a subsidy to go towards purchasing their own personal nebuliser. This respiratory equipment would provide our CF members with a range of living-saving benefits such as reduced duration of frequency of hospitalisations, improved health management and reduced financial stress on the families living with CF.
