Naked & Nude Art Prize

Naked & Nude Art Prize 2021

Entries close June 16

“Naked & Nude refers to two things: firstly the great tradition of the Nude: a person who is bare with no covering or decoration. Secondly, a wider definition: something that is revealed, laid bare, unmasked or vulnerable”.

 The biennial Naked & Nude Art Prize (previously the Manning Art Prize: Naked & Nude) commenced in 1990 with entries open to Australian artists. The Art Prize is a partnership between Friends of the Manning Regional Art Gallery and the Manning Regional Art Gallery. After 29 years, the Naked & Nude Art Prize has become a prestigious national event on the Australian Arts Calendar and is open to artists in a variety of mediums. The lucrative event in 2017 carried a $21,000 prize pool, which has been increased to $31,000 for 2019. The winning entry is acquired by the Friends and donated to the Manning Regional Art Gallery’s permanent collection.
