With almost 500 entries, the pre-selection panel had a very tough time examining each and every entry to reduce the numbers down to just 40 finalists.
These are the forty finalists with thirteen artworks selected from each age category across the three theme categories of Australian native Flora & Fungi, Australian native Fauna and Threatened Species.
