How can we cast our votes on an artwork? And when and where do we find out about the awardees?
Votes for our annual People’s Choice Award can be submitted in person at our hall gallery. Awardees will be notified by email after the judges have been through the exhibit.
The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be announced towards the end of the exhibit to give the public enough time to get their votes in.
