Entries Now Open for the 2019 Gallipoli Art Prize worth $20,000

Filed : Arts and funding opportunities, Local and industry news .

Artists are encouraged to respond to the values of Gallipoli, including loyalty, respect, love of country, courage and comradeship. This is an acquisitive prize.

Artists who wish to creatively explore and commemorate the spirit of the Gallipoli Campaign are encouraged to enter the prize.

This year’s winner, Steve Lopes, was awarded the prize for his painting, Exposed Wood Mont St Quentin, which captures the overgrown battlefield overlooking the town of Péronne, France. 

“Artists can interpret those concepts in lots of other ways apart from the military side of things,” said John Robertson, Chairman of the Gallipoli Art Prize Selection Committee. “It is the Gallipoli Art Prize but it doesn’t have to be about Gallipoli or war.”
