Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize
hosted by Woollahra Council

Double Bay NSW
18 October – 2 November 2014

Established in 2001, the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize attracts strong support from artists, collectors and critics and is the first and only national acquisitive prize that showcases the quality and diversity of sculptures of smaller dimensions.

Over 500 entries from national and international artists are received annually and approximately 40 finalists' works are exhibited over a 16 day period at the historic Woollahra Council Chambers in Double Bay, Sydney, Australia.


1. For the purpose of The Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, sculpture is defined as a freestanding, non-site specific, three-dimensional object, constructed of durable materials. Only freestanding works will be accepted for selection.

2. Entries should not exceed 80cm in any dimension, and must have a stable base. The overall weight and dimensions must allow for easy transportation, and not exceed the carrying capacity of two average persons.

3. All entries must be the original work of the submitting artist and must have been designed or completed within two years prior to October 2014.

4. There is no limit to the number of entries an artist can submit. A separate application form and entry fee must accompany each entry. Only one work per artist
will be shown in the exhibition.

5. A non-refundable entry fee of $40 (including GST) must accompany each entered work. Entry fees contribute towards the cost of staging the Prize. Woollahra Council reserves the right to cancel or postpone the Prize and exhibition, in which case the entry fees will be refunded.

• The Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, an acquisitive award of $15,000
