Re-magine 2017 winners announced

The Cleanaway Award for the Re-magine 2017 art competition goes to Carolyn Cooper for her gorgeous artwork, the “Three Bar Tailed Godwits”. Made mainly from wedding materials, it demonstrates excellent creativity and thought on how rethinking waste can breathe new life into discarded materials.


This year’s competition attracted more than 50 entries, and demonstrated careful thought and consideration. The quality of the entries illustrated the interest in reusing and rethinking how “waste” can be reused and repurposed, with imaginative and incredible pieces that looked like they were assembled from regular items instead of discarded waste.


Cleanaway is proud to lend our support to the Re-magine 2017 art competition, and would like to congratulate the following winners for their inspiring artwork and contribution.
