Tom Bass Prize for Figurative Sculpture - Call for Entries

Entries are now open for the 2020 Tom Bass Prize for Figurative Sculpture. Submissions must be made online via the Prize website.

Entries close 22 November 2019.

This will be the third time the Tom Bass Prize will be awarded and we invite established as well as emerging, and young sculptors to enter. This important and prestigious Prize is a celebration of the human form and its influence on today’s sculptor. We invite artists to submit works that interpret ‘figurative’ broadly; however the inspiration must come from the figure.

The total prize money awarded will be $22,000 (an increase from the last Prize) and all prizes are non-acquisitive.

The 2020 prizes are as follows:

The Tom Bass Prize  - $15,000
Highly Commended - $4,000
Youth Prize - $1,000
Curator's Choice - $1,000
People's Choice  - $1,000

The 2020 Judges are Ingrid Morley, Alex Seton and Jennifer Turpin.
