Call for entries for the new $50,000 Evelyn Chapman Art Award

The Evelyn Chapman Art Award provides a $50,000 scholarship for a young Australian painter, male or female, under the age of 45, to ‘engender the encouragement, development and rewarding of artistic skill, through furthering the training and knowledge and skills of Australian painters.’

The Evelyn Chapman Trust will award a scholarship of $50,000 to support a young Australian painter by furthering their art education both in knowledge and artistic practice.

The artist receiving the award will use the scholarship overseas or in Australia, at a recognised and well-established art school or work at an organisation on a program or project that enhances the artist’s artistic skills.

Applicants can submit one or more landscape, portrait or still life paintings in oils or tempera. A selection committee of three judges will agree on the applicant who displays the highest artistic merit.

Applications for the 2018 award close on 15 September
