Naked & Nude Art Prize 2019

Naked & Nude Art Prize’ is the only art award of its kind in Australia and will attract entries from across Australia from artists at all stages of their careers and working in all mediums. The theme ‘Naked & Nude’ is an evocative platform for creative inspiration, and artists delve into representations of the human form. With a history dating back to ancient times across many cultures, the exposed human figure is one the most enduring themes in the visual arts, and remains relevant to artists across all disciplines. The lucrative event this year carries a $30,000 Acquisitive prize, with the winning entry acquired by the Friends of the Gallery and donated to the Manning Regional Art Gallery permanent collection. A special people’s choice award of $1000 will be awarded by the visiting public at the conclusion of the exhibition.
