Wasteful to Tasteful

Our Wasteful to Tasteful Competition is about making art and culture accessible to all, as well as being a great way to engage with artists and the public to brighten up spaces in the city centre.

We are looking to hold an exhibition with the shortlisted submissions in the St Giles Shopping Centre to encourage footfall into the City Centre once Elgin fully re-opens and the stay at home message is lifted.  We are sure this will create a sense of pride for people with their artwork being showcased within Elgin and with the possibility of it being voted to be on one of the bins for years to come. 

We can’t wait to see what type of designs artists come up with for showcasing Elgin and look forward to seeing it become a reality.

The competition is open to artists of all ages!

Artists can submit up to 5 pieces.

To enter the competition please email [email protected] with:

  • your artwork
  • your name
  • your town/city
  • the title of your artwork.

Artwork should be submitted in suitable electronic format: jpeg, pdf, etc. and be of sufficient resolution to allow printing at large scale. If the file is too large to send by email please send via WeTransfer.
