Wilson HTM National Art Prize

Deadline: 1 October 2007 (RECEIVE)

Wilson HTM National Art Prize

The Wilson HTM National Art Prize is an acquisitive art award open to visual artists practicing in any media.

The primary Prize is acquisitive to the value of $10,000, with a $1,000 non-acquisitive Highly Commended runner-up prize and a $1,000 non-acquisitive People's Choice. The acquisitive prize will comprise a $5000.00 cash payment and an investment portfolio to the value of $5000.00.

Works chosen for the final selection process will be decided by the judging panel from slides, high resolution jpegs burnt to disc, or video/DVD footage submitted with the entry form. Selected artists (fi nalists) will be invited to submit works for final consideration by the judging panel for acquisition.

The judging panel will consist of three people (TBA).

It is intended that the majority of work submitted by finalists will be documented in a catalogue of the Award. Invitation to submit a work for final viewing by the judges does not guarantee that the work will be included in the catalogue and exhibition, however it will remain eligible for acquisition.

The judges will nominate a Winner of the award and that work will automatically be acquired by Wilson HTM. The judges reserve the right not to select a Winner nor any work for acquisition.

The entry fee is $20 and is non-refundable.

The prize winners will be announced at the launch of an exhibition of finalist's work, in Melbourne in February 2008. The finalist's work will then tour to Sydney and Brisbane and will be supported by events in each city.

The Prize is open to artists who primarily reside within Australia. To download a copy of the entry form,
