The Bribie Islander’s inaugural Christmas Cover Art Competition was won by local artist Anca (Shelly) Nedelcu with her digital art painting depicting Santa relaxing on Bribie Island. General manager and editor of The Bribie Islander, David Sweedman, said that inviting local artists to provide the artwork for the Christmas edition was a way to embrace the fun of the season.

He said that he was very grateful for the support lent by The Bribie Island Community Arts Society Inc. to ensure support from local artists. “We congratulate Shelly on winning the competition with her depiction of Santa in a slumbering repose with Pumicestone Passage and The Glasshouse mountains as the backdrop.

This followed the brief of ‘A very Bribie Christmas’. We also thank all those artists who took the trouble to enter this year and trust that they will put forward an artwork in 2019 when we run a similar art competition for the Christmas cover,” he said.
