Bega Valley and Eurobodalla artists are being urged to get creative and revive their recycled waste.

Entries are now open for the annual ReVive Art Prize competition, which offers creative people the opportunity to reduce, reuse and recycle their way to $4,000.

The works must be produced from at least 80 per cent reclaimed or recycled materials, can be in any medium, style or theme and is open to all artists, craftspeople and creative makers who live in South East NSW.

Along with $4,000 for first place, there is also a $500 People’s Choice Award up for grabs.

Entries close on October 9 with further information available on Eurobodalla Shire Council's website, and the winner will be announced at the opening night of the ReVive exhibition at 6.00pm on November 9 at the Mechanics Institute in Moruya.

Meanwhile local artist Katy Goddard will lead two ReVive Artist Workshops this month.
Back by popular demand, the workshops aim to inspire creative people to rework materials from the waste stream.
Ms Goddard will guide participants through the creative process, leading to the creation of a unique and personal work of art.
The workshops cost $44 and will be held at the Surf Beach landfill Buy-back Centre on Tuesday August 15 and Wednesday August 16 from 9.00am to 3.00pm.
