The annual Linden Postcard Show is an open entry award exhibition featuring small contemporary art work in a variety of media and is open to all Australian residents. The exhibition, with a prize pool of over $11,000, has become a prominent event in the Australian cultural calendar and attracts hundreds of entries from all over the country as well as thousands of visitors. The Postcard Show, now in its 15th year and one of the only open entry award exhibitions left in Australia, derives its name from the tradition of selecting six works from each show to be reproduced and sold as Linden postcards. Linden's collection of 109 cards is currently on sale in the gallery.

The Linden Postcard Show is held in February/ March each year with entry forms available from October.
