The Lake Art Prize is a new biennial acquisitive art prize presented by the Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie.

The prize is open nationally to artists aged 18 years and over and offers a total prize pool of AUD25,000.

Entries are now open with submissions closing in October. For exact dates please see their website.

The theme for the inaugural prize is ‘Where there is water’, acknowledging MAC’s stunning lakeside location at Booragul and the venue’s popular 2012 exhibition of the same name.

Artists working across all mediums, including sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, installation and sound, are eligible for the prize.

There is a total acquisitive prize pool of AUD25,000, with the winning artist to have their work purchased by Lake Macquarie City Council.

Works on display will also be for sale to the public, with a AUD2000 People’s Choice Award for the most popular artist up for grabs.

The inaugural Prize Exhibition will take place between
mid December 2020 and early February 2021, with the winner to be announced in December.
