The Lake Art Prize is open to all Australian Artists aged 18 years and over.
Australian artists, aged 18 years and over, are invited to submit works which reflect on the theme 'Where there is Water'.

There is a total acquisitive prize pool of $25,000 (ex GST), with the funding made available by the generosity and support of Lake Macquarie City Council.

Contending artworks will be across all media and can take any form, including sculpture, painting, drawing, photomedia, installation, sound, and a single piece or multi-piece artwork.

The prize culminates with selected artworks being displayed in a finalist exhibition at MAC. The inaugural Prize Exhibition will take place between 12 December 2020 – 7 February 2021.

The prize includes a People’s Choice Award – valued at $2,000 (ex GST) – a non-acquisitive award to the artwork with the highest number of audience votes over the period of the finalist exhibition.

Entries close at midnight on Friday 23 October, with finalists to be notified by October 30.
