The Bluethumb Art Prize is our annual award that aims to raise the profile of Australian artists by supporting, recognising and celebrating their incredible talent and diversity.

The 2018 prize has smashed our inaugural year’s number of entries, with more than double the entries of the Archibald Prize, including many of Australia’s best artists. Building on the overwhelming success of last year’s prize and exhibition, we have doubled the prize money pool and introduced category awards to give more artists the opportunity to step into the spotlight in 2018.

Kudos to our $2,000 category award winners
