The Paddington Art Prize is a $30,000 National acquisitive prize, awarded annually for a painting inspired by the Australian landscape. Established in 2004 by Arts Patron, Marlene Antico OAM, this National prize takes its place among the country’s most lucrative and highly coveted painting prizes.
The prize encourages the interpretation of the landscape as a significant contemporary genre, its long tradition in Australian painting as a key contributor to our national ethos, and is a positive initiative in private patronage of the arts in Australia.
Prize money of $30,000 is to be awarded to the artist of the single winning entry. This National acquisitive prize is for a painting inspired by the Australian Landscape, painted in the last 12 months and not previously exhibited at an art prize.
