The national acquisitive Sunshine Coast Art Prize is a dynamic visual arts award reflecting outstanding contemporary 2D arts practice in Australia. Now in its seventeenth year, the exhibition presents the remarkable finalist works by artists from across the country.

We will have Ellie Buttrose, Curator, Contemporary Australian Art, QAGOMA, joining us as guest judge for the judged prize categories (Major Prize, Highly Commended and Artist Residency awards). The artwork awarded with the Major Prize will be acquired into the Sunshine Coast Art Collection. A People’s Choice prize is also decided by way of public vote by exhibition visitors.

The Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2022 is proudly supported by Sunshine Coast Council, Argon Law Sunshine Coast, De Deyne family, Caloundra Chamber of Commerce, Coastline BMW, Montville Country Cabins, International Art Services and Horizon Festival.
