    Your dates are giving me a headache. The T&C’s labelled “Collie Art Prize 2023” state an opening date of 11 October 22 and closing date of 9 December 2022. That sounds like they relate to the 2022 prize. Is that correct? Under the title “Eligible Artworks” in the 2023 T&C’s, it states “The Artwork must have been undertaken and completed by the artist in the 24 months immediately preceding the closing date for entries of 07 January 2023.” So, is the closing date 9/12/22 or 07/01/23? Then on the website it says, “Beginning on March 4, 2023, the eight-week CAP2023 is sure to be a hit with the creatives of Australia. Entries open Tuesday, October 11, and will close Friday, December 9.” Is that 2022 or 2023? Please advise b4 my head explodes.
