$25,000 National Art Prize Launches in Lake Macquarie

A new $25,000 national acquisitive art prize has launched in the region with leading artists from across Australian expected to submit works. The Lake Art Prize, unveiled by the Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie, is a biennial competition open to artists aged 18 years and over.

The theme for the inaugural prize is ‘Where there is water’, acknowledging MAC's stunning lakeside location at Booragul and the venue's popular 2012 exhibition of the same name.

Artists working across all mediums, including sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, installation and sound, are eligible for the prize. There is a total acquisitive prize pool of $25,000, with the winning artist to have their work purchased by Lake Macquarie City Council. Works on display will also be for sale to the public, with a $2000 People’s Choice Award for the most popular artist on offer.

The inaugural Prize Exhibition will take place between 12 December 2020–7 February 2021, with the winner to be announced on 12 December.

Artworks entered in the competition must have been completed in the 12 months from 23 October 2019 to the entry closing date on Friday 23 October this year. Visit mac.lakemac.com.au/lakeartprize for more information.
