Entries for the 2019 Ramsay Art Prize open on 14 September inviting submissions from Australian artists under 40 working in any medium. Finalists are selected by an international judging panel with the selected works included in an exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Through the generosity of the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation, the winning artist receives $100,000 and the winning work is acquired into the Gallery’s collection.
The 2019 Ramsay Art Prize finalist exhibition will include a People’s Choice Prize supported by Lipman Karas. The People’s Choice Prize is a non-acquisitive cash prize of $15,000 chosen by a public vote.
