Art competition held this month
Central Coast Council's Grandma Moses Art Competition is being held this month.
Now in its 37th year, the competition is open to painters aged over 50 years.
Ms Marie Reibeld of Woy Woy won the People's Choice Award in last year's competition.
Council director Ms Julie Vaughan said the essence of the competition was that it was never too late to learn new skills.
"The Grandma Moses program is more than just a popular art exhibition, it is a celebration of the contributions older people make to our community's cultural fabric," she said.
More than $3000 in prize money is offered across a range of categories, including Open, Watercolour, Novice, Central Coast Inspired and for 50 Plus Leisure and Learning Centre and Senior Centre Art Group members.
Entries are open now and close on August 23.
Prize-winners will be announced on September 10, with entries on exhibition from September 10-12.
