Marking the beginning of the 17th year of the prestigious landscape art award, entries for the Glover Prize 2020 have officially opened. Entries are open to artists from anywhere in the world, who are invited to submit a titled landscape painting of Tasmania that stimulates conversation about the meaning and possibilities expressed in the words ‘landscape’, ‘painting’, and ‘Tasmania’. Entries in the 2019 Glover Prize came from artists all across Australia and the world – with artists from every Australian state and territory, as well as New Zealand, Italy, and the United Kingdom, all submitting works.
The winner of the Glover Prize will receive $50,000 plus a bronze maquette of colonial artist and prize namesake, John Glover, by Peter Corlett valued at $5,000.
Artists have until Friday the 24th of January, 2020 to enter their artworks.
This year, the 2019 Glover Prize received a record 482 entries, which were then narrowed down to just 42 finalists. Next year’s 42 finalists will be announced on Friday 7th of February 2020.
As the Glover Prize’s reputation grows as an art prize, the Glover society are hoping for another strong year for entries.
