Fancy yourself as the next Brett Whitely or maybe Picasso? Now is your chance to make your artistic talents known to the wider world.

Northern Beaches Council is calling for artists to enter the annual Northern Beaches Art Prize.

With more than $24,000 in prizes on offer, it is the region’s most prestigious art competition.

Northern Beaches General Manager Planning, Place & Community David Kerr said the competition provides an excellent opportunity for artists to showcase their talents.

“It’s very important we foster and nurture arts and culture at the local level,” he said.

The Northern Beaches Art Prize (formerly Warringah Art Prize) began in 1955 and is open to all Australian residents as young as 10.

The competition has four main categories; General, Small Sculpture, Waste to Art, and Youth.

Mona Vale sculptor Suzanne Davey won last year’s Art Prize in the sculpture category.

She said winning the prize boosted her artistic efforts after several years of creating, experimenting and developing her ideas.

“It was really affirming and shows that hard work, application and focus does pay. It gave me a feeling of validation and that I was on the right path; the journey continues.”

Entries open on Tuesday 1 May and close on Sunday 24 June and can be completed online through the Northern Beaches Council website.

The competition’s entries will be on display at the Creative Space in North Curl Curl from 10 August to 19 August for General and Small Sculpture, and 24 August to 2 September for Youth and Waste to Art.
