the churchie: National Emerging Art Prize
An annual exhibition that profiles new and emerging artists. It explores a broad range of vibrant contemporary art making, from new media and installation to more traditional mediums.
A short list of 35 artists, crossing a broad range of disciplines, have been selected as finalists for the 2018 prize from over 1000 entries.
The 2018 prize winners will be determined by guest judge Lisa Havilah, director of Carriageworks, Sydney. The Major Prize and three Commendations will be announced at the official opening of the exhibition.
The exhibition will remain open until 4 November and will feature artworks from each of the 35 finalists.
An inaugural People’s Choice Award of $3,000 (sponsored by Rob Whiteley of Madison Cleaning Services) will also be awarded following the completion of the exhibition.
