Entries open: 1 March to 31 March 2021

What we’re looking for

Please include a recognisable representation of the exterior of the City of Perth Library building, you may include other elements if you wish. For example, you could include elements representing what the Library means to you and showing its location in Perth’s CBD. We invite you to visit us at 573 Hay Street, Perth for inspiration.
