Adelaide Park Lands Art Prize

APPA is a community based organisation dedicated to preserving, protecting & restoring Adelaide’s at-risk world-unique garland of Park Lands. The Adelaide Park Lands Art Prize run by APPA (biennial since 2014) has developed a high profile since its inception. The Prize has inspired around 1000 artists from around Australia and several overseas to raise their artistic voice in support for the Park Lands.

APPA has several ongoing activities designed to focus community attention on, and raise awareness of the rarity, beauty and world importance of the Adelaide Park Lands. In addition to the Adelaide Park Lands Art Prize regular activities include guided Park Walks, a ‘photo of the day’ and ‘video of the month’ on social media.

Artist entries for the 2020 Art Prize will be open in August 2019.

Prize money of $38,500 will be offered in 2020. Finalists’ works will again be exhibited at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
