The Great Toowoomba Postcard Project 2008

Now in it’s third year, the Postcard Project was renamed The Great(er) Toowoomba Postcard Project 2008  to reflect that our region is now much bigger due to the amalgamation  of Councils.
This year the judges were artists/arts community identities and educators Deborah Beaumont, Simon Mee and Sandy Pottinger

The Greater Toowoomba Postcard Project 2008 was launched at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery during the Carnival of Flowers. All entries were displayed Ergon Energy Flower, Food & Wine Festival in Queen’s Park during Carnival of Flowers

A Limited Edition Sets of The Greater Toowoomba Postcard Project are available  for $14.90 RRP. Only 500 sets are produced each year.

For retail and wholesale/corporate sales, please contact Arts Council Toowoomba

All proceeds from the sale of the Postcards  go towards creating more opportunities for artists in the Toowoomba region.

Arts Council Toowoomba Inc wishes to acknowledge Toowoomba City Council’s  generosity through Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery’s assistance with this project.
Other sponsors: Artshop & Bloxham Graphics

Why a Postcard Project?
Tourism is a major industry for our city. This is a great opportunity to showcase the creativity of the people of Toowoomba & region through a highly accessible and affordable product: the souvenir postcard.

All aspects of this project will be administered and coordinated by Arts Council Toowoomba Inc.

Proceeds from postcard sales will be used to create more opportunities for artists in the Toowoomba area.

The winners
The winning entries were reproduced as postcards available for sale at highly visible outlets as a fund-raiser for ACT. The artists are acknowledged on the cards and also receive 20 postcards featuring their artwork.

The 2009 project has been postponed until 2010 when it will take a new approach . Watch this site to hear more early next year.
