Contemporary Art Awards is an online art award and mentoring service, based in the district of Brisbane. The aim of this business is to support emerging artists in their early careers and deliver an award with prize money, products and access to free mentoring. The award does not restrict entries by category and welcomes all mediums including painting, works on paper, new media, photography, ceramics, sculpture, illustration, installation, and many more. In addition to the prizes on offer, the objective is to provide ongoing support not only for the winner but for all selected finalists. The award is externally judged by industry professionals. The overall winner will be awarded a $3,000 non-acquisitive cash prize sponsored by Dynamic Events, a $1,500 voucher sponsored by Fix8 Systems, a six-month Mentoring Program (optional), and an art review written by one of our art writers.
Contemporary Art Awards will showcase outstanding emerging artists providing an opportunity for audience members to view a unique collection of contemporary art delivering an excellent opportunity for art lovers and collectors alike. Works will be available for sale through the online gallery.
