Bulgari Art Award
The Bulgari Art Award is an annual award to support contemporary Australian painting.
Each year, the Gallery identifies a significant painting by a mid-career Australian artist to be acquired for the collection.
The award, sponsored by Bulgari, consists of $50,000 for acquisition of the painting and a residency for the artist in Italy valued at $30,000. The total award of $80,000 makes it one of the most valuable art awards in Australia.
The Bulgari Art Award is not an open competition, like the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes. You cannot apply to enter.
