The Spring into Sanctuary Point Festival, a beloved local event eagerly anticipated by the community, has once again captured our hearts. For the second consecutive year, Firefly Bay and Basin, collaborated with Sanctuary Point Community Pride Inc., and organised a poster competition for budding young artists to design the festival’s poster. This week, the winning entry was unveiled. The artist behind this masterpiece? None other than Lily, a talented 14-year-old student from Vincentia High School.

Lily’s artwork stood out amidst the submissions, skilfully encapsulating the festival’s essence with its vibrant colours, intricate hand-drawn elements, and impeccable adherence to competition specifications.

The selection process was collaborative, with members of Sanctuary Point Community Pride and partner organisations like Headspace, FRRR (Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal), and Elder Marilyn Smith joining forces to choose the winning design. It was evident from the very beginning that Lily’s creation possessed a unique quality that resonated deeply with everyone who had the privilege of laying eyes on it.
