Lake Art Prize 2020 - Entries Now Open

The Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie has launched the Lake Art Prize, a new biennial National Acquisitive Prize for Contemporary Australian Art – valued at $25,000.

Australian artists, aged 18 years and over, are invited to submit works which reflect on the theme ‘Where there is Water’.

There is a total acquisitive prize pool of $25,000 (ex GST), with the funding made available by the generosity and support of Lake Macquarie City Council.

Contending artworks will be across all media and can take any form, including sculpture, painting, drawing, photomedia, installation, sound, and a single piece or multi-piece artwork.

The prize culminates with selected artworks being displayed in a finalist exhibition at MAC. The inaugural Prize Exhibition will take place between 12 December 2020 – 7 February 2021.
