Hey everyone we thought it was time to give you an update on the Ocean Week 2016 grand prize.
As you might remember the prize for last year was the creation of a large painted mural created by the community and adapted by a famous artist plus a plaque containing all the player names that reached the required number of points.
**So whats the delay?**
We had identified a number of locations for the mural in Sydney, our first location was in the Bondi area on the side of a local restaurant, but unfortunately this fell through in the last stages of approvals.
Our next favored location was the Bondi Beach Sea Wall. To obtain permission to paint the mural on the sea wall you have to go through local council approval. Each year many artists compete to paint a section of the sea wall and unfortunately we did not gain approval. It's a blow as its an awesome location but this is not the end of the 2016 Ocean Week wall.
Caspian De Looze, who is a famous tattoo/artist from Sydney, has worked with the winners of last years art competition and has completed the mural and is poised and ready to paint our next chosen location.
**So what are the next steps? **
We are working to find a new location so that we can have the mural painted as soon as possible so we can celebrate all the players that took part in Ocean Week 2016. We will keep you posted and let you all know when we have secured our location.
If you have any questions throw them in the comments below and I will do my best to answer them all.
