ART connoisseurs be quick.

The 21st birthday celebration of the 2013 Captain Cook 1770 Festival is set to draw crowds from far and wide to Agnes Water from May 22 to 26.

From all over Australia and often internationally, artists have continued to submit their work in the festival's annual art show.

Entries to this year's epic art show have been extended to Monday, May 6, giving artists the chance to participate in the grand event.

Art show coordinator and festival committee member David Allen said the show covers five categories.

"Painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and textiles.

"We also have two junior sections of primary and secondary school which are free to enter."

Mr Allen said the total prize pool is almost $5000.

Major sponsor Queensland Alumina Limited (QAL), are offering the key prizes.

"It's an ever-changing thing," Mr Allen said in relation to the art show.

"It's interesting to watch the progression of the local artists and young artists."
