You can read about the prizes for this year's competition on the prizes page.

We want to encourage submissions from artists who have never exhibited, performed or had works performed at a major venue and/or have a limited number of exhibitions/performances. We want to promote and encourage 'emerging' artists regardless of their age, credentials, degrees, etc. In the end, we would like to think that artists are their best judges of their own careers.

All works must be submitted using the online system. Mailed or emailed materials will not be considered. If you have any issues then please contact us.

Collaborative pieces are welcomed, providing all the contributors are emerging artists. Please also be aware that collaborative works will contribute towards the entry limit for each of the individual artists.

All collaborative artists must register/create an account before a collaborative entry can be submitted. The actual entry can be submitted by any one of the artists.

There is no entry fee but artists are limited to submit only one work. Subsequent entries will not be considered.

No, artists are responsible for arranging the delivery and collection of work, including shipping costs. However, we might be able to contribute towards part of this but this will be decided on a case by case basis.
