Opportunity | Sculpture @ Shaw

Entries are now back open for Sculpture@Shaw, Australia’s prestigious new sculpture prize worth $25,000 presented by Shaw Wines in partnership with Belco Arts. Following the 2020 award’s postponement due to COVID-19, they are excited to invite artists from across Australia to submit proposals online for the 2021 exhibition.

The prize aims to celebrate outdoor public art that exudes a sense of play and imagination. Artists are encouraged to challenge viewers with experiential works that can be small, large scale, or site-specific to the beautiful Shaw Wines and surrounding Murrumbateman countryside. The springtime exhibition of the curated finalists will be a ticketed event and will run from 4 September to 19 September 2021.

$15,000 – Sculpture@Shaw Prize (an exhibition for large works in the paddock)

$5,000 – Cellar Door Prize (an exhibition for smaller plinth based works)

$3,000 – Emerging Artist Prize

$2,000 – People’s Choice Award
