The Hepburn Swiss Italian Festa Committee is delighted to announce that the winner of the 2020 Festa Artwork Prize is LLIAM AMOR.

Lliam Amor – 2020 Art Prize Winner

Lliam is a Melbourne-based illustrator and creative artist who also acts and improvises. Lliam has distant Swiss heritage, and family connections in the Castlemaine area, and said he had jumped at the chance to create an artwork for the Festa.

Through generous sponsorship support from the Farmers Arms Hotel Daylesford, Lliam will be awarded the $1000 Festa Artwork Prize for 2020.

The Swiss Italian Festa ran for 25 years from 1993 to 2017. Each year, the Festa featured an original artwork or design that appeared on posters, programs and marketing materials to promote that year’s event. This year, local artists, photographers and designers were invited to submit an original artwork for the 2020 Swiss Italian Festa.

With the cancellation of the 2020 Festa due to COVID-19, the Festa Committee will focus now on an upgrade of our website and social media platforms. Lliam’s winning artwork will be the face of this enhanced online presence for the Festa. The winning work will also be used to promote a range of online activities that the Festa will host in the coming months.

Thanks to all those artists who entered the competition, and thanks again to the Farmers Arms Daylesford for their generous sponsorship of the 2020 Festa Artwork Prize.

Watch out for Lliam’s artwork when we launch the Swiss Italian Festa’s new website … coming soon!
