Friends of Malabar Headland has for some years sponsored a special prize in the South Maroubra Art Show. The Art Show is an annual event held in early November, organised by the South Maroubra Art Show committee headed by Marilyn Jeffries, and held over three days in a marquee opposite South Maroubra shopping centre.

The FoMH segment asks entrants to portray some aspect of the natural beauty of Malabar Headland, to show what a special place the Headland is, and why it must be preserved and protected. FoMH has a stall at the Art Show, and visitors can make their views known via letters to the state and federal government ministers who are responsible for the headland and its future.

The winners have certainly portrayed the natural beauty of the Headland! The segment is judged by the Art Show committee judging panel. The first prize of $75 went to David Niwa for this painting:

 

Second prize of $25 went to Christine Vasilis for this entry:

 

Congratulations to David and Christine, and to everyone who entered, and to the South Maroubra Art Show committee on organising this event.

We look forward to the next South Maroubra Art Show!
