WELCOME TO THE PADDINGTON ART PRIZE 2018

A $30,000 National acquisitive prize for a painting inspired by the Australian landscape, now in it’s 15th year. In addition, UNSW Art & Design will offer a selected artist the opportunity to create a limited edition print and a $3,000 prize  sponsored by Chris Antico will be presented to the Honourable Mention recipient. Defiance Gallery will offer 2 artists the opportunity to exhibit at Mary Place Gallery in Sydney in 2019. A $1,000 gift certificate from the Sydney Art Store will be presented to the Highly Commended recipient. We are continuing the People’s Choice Award with a $1,000 gift certificate sponsored by Charvin Oils and Louisa Antico from Sofala Cottage will offer a selected artist a 1 week retreat at her beautiful guest house in Sofala NSW.

We couldn’t do it without you! As this year draws to a close and a new one begins, we would like to thank everyone for their support and patronage throughout 2018. We thank the judges, the artists, the volunteers who work so tirelessly behind the scenes, the general public and art enthusiasts!

We especially want to thank our sponsors who have been with us for many years – Chris Antico, The Sydney Art Store, UNSW Art and Design, Charvin Oils Paris, Sofala Cottage, Lucio’s Italian Restaurant, Tracey Deep Floral Sculpture and Valiant Hire. Special thanks goes to Lauren Harvey and Campbell Robertson-Swann of Defiance Gallery and Michael Nock of Nock Art Foundation for generously sponsoring the Defiance Gallery Award this year.

We wish you all a safe and joyous Holiday Season and a happy and prosperous New Year. We wish you every success in 2019 and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
