- Supply Northland Craft Trust with a sculpture, craft product, clothing item or toy made out of a waste, recycled or scrap product. This needs to be completed and on site by Wed 4th June 2008. (it is up to you if you wish to sell your artwork)
- You are also encouraged to photograph your work and add it onto the “Junk to Green Funk” Online Gallery Competition being run by Trade Aid which will be judged by a panel of judges in June/July 2008 (see attached info about online competition).
- Your image must be on the website by 5pm on 5th June 2008 (We can assist you with this if you require help)

You have complete artistic freedom to do as you wish so long as it is made from recycled products.

Stallholders for Market Day: Contact Northland Craft Trust to book a space for a stall. The emphasis is on environmental awareness so we are looking for local artisans who use local products. The cost for a stall is $15.

Then what happens?
- Your work will then be displayed around the Quarry from Fri 6th - Mon 9th June 2008. The main event will be on Sat 7th June with an open day for public, judging of the art works, a market day of local artisans, music, food and a fun filled free day out for the whole family.
- Your art piece along with the others will be judged throughout the day. There will be a range of fantastic prizes for different ages and categories.
- Trade Aid and Northland Craft Trust will be promoting this event both locally and nationally which means you will gain some exposure and publicity from this event.
