'What makes Bad Art?’, I hear you ask.
Well, the criteria are simple(ish):
Completely devoid of technical skill (Colour, tone, perspective and shading)
Unusual, poor or tasteless subject matters (Preferably all three!)
Undeniable passion, driven by an uneducated hand.
That ‘special’ feeling that forms in your gut
A further extension of The MOPBA was the establishment of the “Itchiball Prize”, where the general public submitted pieces of Art, either their own or found works, in an attempt to claim this ‘prestigious’ prize.

The Itchiball Prize winner will receive vouchers to the value of a total of $2,000.00(including GST) to be spent on products and services in the Chapel Street Windsor Retail Precinct.
ThePeople’s Choice Award winner will receive vouchers to the value of $1000.00
