Days Left

Since 2004, artist submissions to the Paddington Art Prize have grown significantly, from 200 to over 1,300 in 2018. With an annual first prize of $30,000, more than $350,000 in prize money has been awarded to Australian artists over this period together with many invaluable non-acquisitive prizes.

In celebration of our achievements over 16 years we have created The Art Patron’s Group, an exclusive group of patrons who wish to support Australian landscape painting and the artists that dedicate themselves to this significant genre.

The formation of The Art Patron’s Group will create a solid foundation for this important and well-respected art prize to continue to grow and assist in developing the careers of Australian Artists.

Patrons are asked to make a 100% tax deductible donation of $1,000 per year to the Paddington Art Prize through the Australian Cultural Fund . We ask that donations be made by August 31st, 2019.
