Dedicated to the memory of the late Lyn McCrea (1944 – 2015); contemporary visual artist, art educator and art collector.

The Lyn McCrea Memorial Drawing Prize was established by John McCrea in 2015 to honour Lyn’s passion for drawing as fundamental to visual arts practice.

The prize is a national award (non-acquisitive) held annually and is open to all practicing Australian contemporary artists.

The aim of the prize is to promote excellence in contemporary Australian drawing.
