The Banyule Award for Works on Paper is awarded biennially to an outstanding contemporary work on paper. It is an acquisitive prize, with the winning artwork entered into the Banyule Art Collection.
The City of Banyule Art Collection is a contemporary collection of art works by leading and emerging Australian artists, including the likes of John Wolseley, Pat Brassington, Brook Andrew, Daniel Moynihan, John Nixon, and Peter Booth, just to name a few. While it includes a range of media it is distinguished by its collection of works on paper. The Banyule Award for Works on Paper capitalises upon this strength by developing this aspect of the collection further.
We invite artists working across all mediums to enter - painting, drawing, sculpture, artist books, jewellery, photography, printmaking, etc. Think outside the box! As long as the primary material used in making the artwork is paper, it is eligible for entry.
