The Balcony Restaurant in Byron is running a competition for young artists. They want to know ‘What does Byron Bay mean to you?’

The best artistic representation submitted will win an ultimate artists’ prize pack. You can submit any visual art whether it’s a video, a photo, a drawing, a painting or a sculpture, as long as it expresses your favourite things about Byron Bay.

Submissions will be separated into two categories: the ‘under-8-years-old’ group and the ‘8–12-years-old’ group. We will have one artist prize pack, valued at $100, from local art shop Still @ The Centre to give away for each category, plus free kids’ meals to give away to the runners-up.

All you need to do to enter is upload your child’s artwork onto Facebook with their name and age and tag Balcony Bar & Oyster Co to go into the running. Alternatively you can upload the artwork directly onto Balcony Bar & Oyster Co’s Facebook page. For full terms and conditions head to the Balcony Bar & Oyster Co Facebook page.

The competition runs from 1 January till 1 March. Winners will be notified via Facebook Messenger within a week of the competition’s closing to organise collection of their prize.
