Published on 31 August 2020

The City of Ryde has announced the finalists of the 2020 Sustainable Waste to Art Prize (SWAP), with 80 entries in the running to win one of the five awards on offer. 

SWAP is the City of Ryde's unique competition in which budding local artists are asked to produce works with a sustainable theme that are made from repurposed material.

The 80 finalists were selected from 135 entries and will now form the artworks featured in the upcoming digital SWAP exhibition.

Featured among the finalists are works in which waste has been transformed into marine creatures, landscapes and portraits, fabulous fashion and responses to our current health crisis.

The SWAP award winners will be announced at the digital launch of the exhibition on Wednesday 23 September.

The SWAP exhibition will be available online from Thursday 24 September to Thursday 8 October.
