The Whyalla Art Prize is now accepting entries for its 2017 round.
In 1972, the Whyalla Art Prize was established by the Whyalla Arts Council. Originally designed to promote regional emerging artists, the prize has flourished and developed into a significant award and is seen as an important exhibition of contemporary arts in Australia.
Discovering new talents, invigorating artistic passions while supporting our national artists has seen the Whyalla community acquire an impressive and notable collection of artworks in iconic styles that reflect the spirit and the changing face of Australia.
The Whyalla Art Prize is a biennial prize open to all Australian residents for 2 dimensional artwork in any medium other than photography.
Entries must be received by 5:00pm (ACDT) Monday 29 May 2017
