Land­scape art prize open

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Art -

WA’S art com­pe­ti­tion for land­scapes, the $20,000 Perth Royal Art Prize, was launched at the Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety at Clare­mont Show­ground last month.

The prize was es­tab­lished to raise the pro­file of the 1974-cre­ated Perth Royal Art Show held at the Wilkin­son Gallery at the Perth Royal Show each year.

RASWA art cu­ra­tor San­dra Mur­ray said all land­scape views were el­i­gi­ble, but en­tries had to be two-di­men­sional, fit a com­pe­ti­tion size and be by WA res­i­dents.

She said the land­scapes could be real or imag­ined, ru­ral or ur­ban and a high cal­i­bre of en­tries were an­tic­i­pated.

The win­ner of the $20,000 first prize will be able to sell their work and there will be two highly com­mended en­tries, who will each re­ceive $1500.

The pool in­cludes a $1500 art transport voucher and a $500 peo­ple’s choice award.

En­tries close on July 28 and win­ners will be an­nounced on Septem­ber 18.

The show will be held from Septem­ber 19 to 30.
