The Clothespeg Project launched in Perth back in 2007;  the concept is based around these simple instructions – submit any style of work, about any theme you like, with whatever content you want – there is no limitation other than size. Previous volumes have included work from graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, tattoo artists, textile artists, painters, street artists and sculptors. The open submission format welcomes submissions from anyone. Currently in its third volume the project will be touring to Sydney and Perth with a call for works currently open.

As part of The Clothespeg Project an award is offered (sponsored by some lovely host galleries) for one artist who is declared the ‘best in show’ to receive a free solo exhibition in the space. Past winners have included local designers Sean Morris and Kate Anna Williams.

Deadline for submissions is July 24. To submit, head to
