Yarra's Youth Ambassadors, in collaboration with the Yarra Sustainability Awards, present the inaugural uneARTthed art competition.

uneaARThed is an environmental art prize which highlights some of the issues that are of greatest concern to young people in Yarra.

Young people aged 15 – 25 who live, study, work or play in the City of Yarra are invited to create and submit visual and wearable artworks to be in the running for prizes valued up to $500.

Artworks must respond to the phrase 'Even little things make a big difference' through the use of visual art, photography, illustration and wearable art.

Finalists' artwork will be featured in a special World Environment Day exhibition from Thursday 5 June - Friday 6 June.

Winners will be announced at the exhibition's opening night on Thursday 5 June from 6pm - 9pm (venue TBA).
