Entries are open for the Pro Hart Outback Art Prize from Monday 9 May 2022.

The Pro Hart Outback Art Prize is an acquisitive competition showcasing work in any media which reflects the spirit and diversity of the Australian Outback.

The prize consists of an Acquisitive First Prize, a Non-Acquisitive Second Prize and a People’s Choice Award with a total prize pool of $23,000.

PHOAP recognises the continued support and contribution to the arts by the Hart family. Pro Hart and his oeuvre are synonymous with Broken Hill’s fascinating history and reputation as a regional artistic hub. PHOAP recognises this contribution.

The prize is made possible with the generous support of Raylee J Hart & the Hart family in honour of Pro Hart. This year the Gallery is excited to have Rayleen Forester and Joanna Kitto, co-editors of fine print, as the judges for the 2022 Pro Hart Outback Art Prize.


First Prize: $20,000 acquisitive
Second Prize: $2000
Peoples Choice: $1000
