This year's Sculpture by the Bay competition is shaping up to be one of the best, with a record number of entries and strong interest from across the state.

The event, which will be held from February 29 until March 2 as part of the annual Dunsborough Arts Festival, has received 86 entries from artists across WA.

Festival coordinator Vicky Small said the event was now one of the most important calendar events for sculpture competition in WA, with high quality work from artists around the state, and encouraged more corporate interest.

"The works range from large scale works that will be displayed outdoors along the foreshore and in Seymour Park, and small sculptures that will be viewed indoors at the Christian Fletcher Gallery," she said.

"Sculptures this year will range in price from $1000 to $42,000, and include both small and larger works that will appeal to a broad audience."

Last year, the competition attracted more than 7,000 people.
