The Basil Sellers Art Prize 2010
The Basil Sellers Art Prize seeks to offer artists substantial rewards which acknowledge their achievements and support their professional development through an award and exhibition with a national profile. The cash award to the winning artist in this acquisitive art prize is $100,000 (excl. GST). Artists shortlisted for the exhibition of finalists will receive a $3,000 participation fee (excl GST). The exhibition itself will be supported by a catalogue, public programs and a promotional campaign. A further prize of $5,000 (excl GST) will be awarded to one of the exhibiting finalists on the basis of votes in the People’s Choice Award.
Artists are invited to approach the theme of sport in whatever way best suits both their practice and their attitude to sport: positively or critically, directly or indirectly. Submissions may refer to existing art works, proposed art works or both. The aim of the prize is to encourage artists to develop their practice, not to steer them down a path they would not usually follow.
This is the second biannual award in a ten-year cycle. Over the life of the Basil Sellers Art Prize, we hope to change perceptions of the relationship between sport and art. We welcome your entry.
