Cliftons Art Prize 2014
Cliftons Art Prize is an annual competition open to emerging and established artists in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore. It helps raise the profiles of local artists and encourages corporate patronage of the arts, offering international exposure for local artists across Asia Pacific.
Every year, local artists across Asia Pacific are encouraged to enter the online competition with a submission of their artwork. Entry is FREE. Entries are reviewed by independent and accomplished judges, who bring a wealth of experience to the art scene. Once finalists are selected, Cliftons will host a four week exhibition at each venue to showcase the finalists’ artworks.
The competition concludes with an awards evening, where a local artist at each Cliftons location will receive an award of AUD$2,000. Winners will automatically be shortlisted for the coveted Cliftons Art Prize, an award of AUD$10,000.
Deadline: 4 April 2014
Cliftons Art Prize finalists will have their artworks on display at Cliftons venues* from 2 June 2014 to 3 July 2014. At the conclusion of the exhibition the winners chosen by the panel of judges, plus the "People's Choice" awards for each location, will then be announced at Exclusive VIP Awards Evenings across our venues.
* in Sydney, Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Singapore, Hong Kong.
