Plastic Fantastic Sculpture Challenge

Competition and Exhibition!

Date: Mar 2 – Jun 30Space: Mezzanine

Take part in this fun competition, and repurpose some of that supermarket waste that we can no longer recycle! 

Create a quirky 3D sculpture with an environmental message completely from clean plastic waste. Use your imagination and go wild! There are no limits to what you can do. Check Google images or Pinterest for some awesome inspiration!

Deliver your piece to CAN to be added to our Plastic Fantastic Challenge exhibition display area anytime before the deadline of 26 June, and be judged by Guest Judges Environmental Artist Susan Mabin and Seaweek Educator Jake Brookie.

Susan and Jake will judge the competition based on the following criteria: Clear Visual Message, Construction and Visual Appreciation.

Your sculpture must stand on its own, or be made with a hook for hanging on the wall.

Adults and kids are welcome to take part, using clean plastic waste, either from home or found on the beach. You can enter as an individual or as a group. Entry to the competition is just $5 per entry, with a stack of prizes to be won!

Entry forms are available at the CAN Front Desk, or you can download one here: CAN plastic 2020 Entry Form

So bring in your creation and add it to the display, and watch the CAN Facebook page for updates!


We CAN’T WAIT to see all your creations and put them on display!
