The Libris Awards, while a wonderful opportunity for book artists across many genres, is open only to residents of Australia.
What this means, in terms of a BAO group submission, is that the overseas players would miss out and it would not be a true group exhibit. But individual submissions of work from one of the groups, provided the artist is a resident of at least 12 months here, would be accepted.
And the next point is a bit of a "blank stare" as a date has not been set! This is from an email sent from Artspace last week in response to my query about submission dates:
We have decided to move the dates of the next Libris Awards.
We are awaiting the arrival of our next Director to set the dates for sure. But to stay up to date with any news, please keep an eye on our website:www.artspacemackay.com.au
September seems likely.
