Telstra calling

Indigenous artists from the North Coast region can showcase their artwork to the nation by entering the 29th Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award.

They could also win the major $40,000 cash prize. That's massive!

"Each year we see such a remarkable display of artworks entered into the Award, from detailed barks to intricate canvases," Telstra Country Wide local area general manager North Coast region Sue Passmore said. (Yes that's her title. Must have a huge business card.)

Last year's Award attracted more than 320 entries from Indigenous artists across Australia, with 61 artists selected as finalists.

For an entry form, phone the exhibition co-ordinator at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory on (08) 8999 8203 or email natsiaa@nt.gov.au. Or visit www.nt.gov.au/natsiaa.

Entries close on March 16.
