A $100,000 national art prize supporting contemporary Australian artists under 40.
Held every two years, the Ramsay Art Prize invites submissions from Australian artists under 40 working in any medium. Finalists are selected by an international judging panel with their work included in an exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Through the generosity of the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation, the winning work is acquired into the Gallery’s collection.
The 2019 Ramsay Art Prize finalist exhibition includes a People’s Choice Prize supported by sponsor Lipman Karas. The People’s Choice Prize is a non-acquisitive cash prize of $15,000 chosen by a public vote.
‘Winning the prize really reasserted my position as an artist and it gave my practice a huge boost in confidence. All artists want their work and dedication to their craft to be acknowledged.’
