York Botanic Art Prize 2020

YORK BOTANIC ART PRIZE 2020

EXHIBITION 31 OCTOBER 2020 - 3 JANURY 2021

Western Australia is renowned worldwide for its incredible diversity of plant life, with some of the richest biodiversity on the planet and a large percentage of species being endemic to this land.

To celebrate this abundance of unique flora and highlight the importance of its conservation, Gallery 152 and the York Branch of The Wildflower Society of Western Australia have launched the York Botanic Art Prize.

Botanical art in Australia has undergone somewhat of a renaissance in the last 10 years; however, unlike other botanical art prizes, we're not looking for scientific illustrations nor necessarily representative work - the only limitation being that work must directly relate to the theme of Western Australian flora and make reference to specific WA species. 

PRIZES

Winner: $7,500 [acquisitive]
People's Choice: $500 [non-acquisitive]

Finalists will be exhibited in York, Western Australia, at Gallery 152, 31 October 2020 - 3 January 2021.

The award will be judged by Professor Kingsley Dixon, Helen Turner, Gregory Pryor and Angela Stewart, with the winner announced at the formal opening on Sunday 1 November 2020.
