// THE 2017 BLUETHUMB ART PRIZE

Raise your profile. 1st Place wins $10,000.

The 2017 Bluethumb Art Prize is a continuation of our mission to connect artists with art lovers. Back in 2009, we didn’t want Australia to have to wait until our artists made it into a gallery to discover their stories, and so Bluethumb was born. Now in 2017, we’re going one step further with great exposure and a $10,000 prize for the best Bluethumb profile picture.

The 2017 Bluethumb Art Prize is open to all Australian artists. The artwork can be realistic, abstract, a landscape, self-portrait… anything really, as long as it's a signature piece that represents you and your style.

How will you raise your profile with artistic self-expression? Your best feature? Your secret place? Your alter ego?
