Entries for the churchie national emerging art prize are now open, closing at 14 July 2019. All Australian emerging visual artists (over the age of 18), serious about developing their professional arts practice, are encouraged to apply.

Established in 1987, The Churchie National Emerging Art Prize is a highly regarded emerging art prize dedicated to innovation and excellence across contemporary, traditional and new media genres. This non-acquisitive prize is open to all disciplines. Artists are required to submit up to three artworks, all relevant professional information and a 300-word artist statement.

Last year’s winner was Caroline Gasteen, a Brisbane-based artist whose practice focuses on the two-dimensional image as object. Her style draws on modernism and abstraction, and she has a particular interest in colour relationships and dimensionality.
