Make History with Off The Leash

Calling all Northern Territory-based visual artists!

We’ve been working towards something very exciting in the background over the last couple of years and we’re proud to announce, from 2022 onwards, Off The Leash is breaking beyond the boundaries of the Top End to celebrate the broad spectrum of creativity and community across the NT, with our Territory-wide expansion.

To celebrate, we’re giving one talented Territory-based visual artist the chance to have their work showcased on the cover of our first special NT-wide edition, plus a $300 cash prize. Nice one!

The winning artwork will feature on 10,000 printed copies of #otlmag across the NT, be splashed across our social media and website, and score you some serious bragging rights. We’ll also include a little profile on you and your work in the first Territory-wide mag, which could lead to some fantastic opportunities down the track…

Keen vanilla bean? To enter, please send:

  • a high res image of your portrait format artwork* responding to the theme Northern Territory (open to interpretation – get creative!)
  • a brief description of the work
  • a 100-200 word bio on yourself

to by Mon 7 Mar.

It’s a huge achievement for us at OTL and the NT community, and we’re oh so excited – come and make history with us!
