Linden Postcard Show

The Linden Postcard Show is another great idea for an exhibition that has become somewhat of an institution in Melbourne.
Each year the Linden Gallery run their postcard competition. Anybody is able to enter a postcard sized artwork (up to 3 per person) into the competition. Judges then pick the winning postcards, and the winner receives $5,000.

With some big sponsers behind the competition, it receives a lot of good coverage, and lots of entries each year - About 2,500 entries were received into this years' show.

It's another example of democratic art, where anyone can enter. For my gallery / store (if that's what my business becomes), I'm leaning towards the sort of art that anyone can submit.
