The Northern Beaches Art Prize is on again and entries are now open for the competition. With a prize pool of $27,000 on offer, it is the regionís most prestigious art competition, with a history spanning over 50 years.

The prize is open to all permanent Australian residents, aged 10 years and over. It represents a marvellous opportunity to exhibit your creative talents, while being rewarded for your efforts.

There are four categories: General, Small Sculpture, Waste-to-Art, and Youth. Entries are now open and close on Monday 24 June, and can be completed online via Council’s website.

Mayor Regan said the competition continues to play an integral role in showcasing the incredible talent of local artists within our own cultural community.

“It’s amazing the calibre of entries from people who may not normally feel inclined to enter art competitions.”

Last year’s General category winner Jacquie Maynard said winning the competition boosted her confidence.

“Having worked on my own for many years, it was really good to have my art acknowledged by others. It was a great feeling to be chosen from some hundreds of entries.

“It was even better that both the judges asked to buy my winning painting on the night, and one of them did.”

“I encourage all would-be artists, young and old, to have a go,” she said.

The competition’s successful entries will be displayed at the Creative Space in North Curl Curl from 9 August to 18 August for General and Small Sculpture, and 30 August to 8 September for Waste-to-Art and Youth.

For information on last year’s winners and their successful entries, please go to Council’s website.
