About this Curation

We've spent the last two weeks looking at the astonishing entries for the bluethumb Art Prize. Many heated discussions were had at bluethumb HQ as we ruminated over our Top 100. With 1140 artists submitting exclusive originals, our new art prize is bigger than this year's Archibald.

We're overwhelmed and humbled by the positive response from the Australian art community, and thank every artist that took the time to create and submit their work. Congratulations to all the shortlisted artists!
