** MEDIA RELEASE ** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

It is with a great deal of excitement that we announce the nine finalists for the International Mural Fest 2016, which includes three entrants from overseas, Canada, U.S.A. and Poland.

Also we have first time finalists from Tasmania along with the established crowd favourites having made the cut which round out the finalists.

It is our vision to have the best Mural artists in the world come to Sheffield to this unique competition. Therefore with entrants on the same level as previous years in numbers and quality from across mainland states, Tasmania, other countries such as India, Argentina & New Zealand this trend is welcomed.

I believe our Mural artists are as good as any in the world however it would be great to see it not just say it.
