If you cant find answers to your questions on the website, please feel free to get in touch for more details or to organise how to get your artwork to us.

You can create anything on anything with anything, as long as its A5

Out of towner, hey? We don’t judge, bring your art! Or in this case, send it.

So, you love to make art, but you aren’t close to a drop off point – Have no fear! You can still submit your doodles, photographs, paintings… um… art to us!

  1. Just pop your A5 art in between 2 pieces of cardboard (to keep it safe and not bent)
  2. Pop your “art sandwich” into an envelope.
  3. Write on the envelope in clear bold letters: CARD ONLY: DO NOT BEND
  4. Post it to us via snail mail to 1000 Drawings, P O Box 274, Parklands, 2121
