MORE than 140 entries were sent to the HyperVision competition in Midland this year with four local youth chosen as winners in the Midland Gate Shopping Centre’s ninth annual competition.

Midland Gate and City of Swan youth-based arts program invited emerging artists aged between 12 and 25 to submit compositions addressing the theme of ‘Reality Check’.

Artists were asked to express their views on reality, asking them “what is real” in their lives, community and on the world stage.

Entries to the HyperVision competition were accepted across six different categories including photography, sculpture, traditional media, fashion/jewellery, experimental and short film.

The works are on display from Monday to Sunday July 24, Midland Gate shoppers are encouraged to experience these spectacular works of art, before voting for their favourite project in the exhibition for the People’s Choice Award.

Each participating voter will enter a draw to win a $400 Midland Gate gift card, and the overall ‘People’s Choice Artist’ will receive a $1000 prize from Midland Gate Shopping Centre.

The competition also offers the opportunity for artists to showcase their work in a public display.

Three locals were awarded prizes in the event.
