The 2017 Sir Ivan bushfire put a halt to Dunedoo's prestigious Art Unlimited and now the coronavirus called COVID-19 will do the same.
Art Unlimited event manager Penny Stevens has announced that the art competition and exhibition will not proceed in 2020.
"It is with great regret that due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the organisers of Art Unlimited have made the decision to cancel this year's event which was scheduled for May," she said.
"The ongoing uncertainty surrounding the extent of the restrictions and the effect they will have on the event and its participants has compelled Dunedoo Lions Club and the Art Unlimited committee to take this measure."
Ms Stevens said the health and well-being of all who supported Art Unlimited was paramount.
"In due course when the crisis has passed, it is hoped that a new date can be set," she said.
"Entry and workshop booking fees already paid will be refunded.
"The committee wishes to thank all who have supported Art Unlimited in the past and hopes for their continuing support and understanding at this extraordinary time."
