WELCOME TO THE PADDINGTON ART PRIZE

A $25,000 National acquisitive prize for a painting inspired by the Australian landscape, now in it’s 14th year. A $5,000 non-acquisitive young artist’s prize for artists aged 18 to 30, is offered again this year. In addition, UNSW Art & Design will offer a selected artist the opportunity to create a limited edition print and a $2,000 prize will be presented to the Honourable Mention recipient. A $1,000 gift certificate from the Sydney Art Store will be presented to the Highly Commended recipient. As well, a selected artist will be given the opportunity to enjoy a 1 week retreat at Sofala Cottage. This year we are introducing the People’s Choice Award with a $1,000 gift certificate sponsored by Charvin Oils.
