The art in ZineWest has always been important to us, but needed better attention. In 2014 the artwork benefited from a community small grant from Parramatta City Council which also supported the written word component of ZineWest. Below are the winning art works. The theme was “My Western Sydney Backyard”. The award for Best Image was judged by Sophia Kouyoumdjian, co-ordinator of Parramatta Artists Studios. You can find more art by winning artist Robert Frost at Tumblr
