The inaugural Collie Art Prize

The Collie Art Gallery has launched an ambitious biennial major art event, with the largest single art prize to be awarded throughout regional Australia.

The acquisitive first prize of $50,000 cash has been made possible thanks to the generous commitment of Collie & Districts Community Bank Branch of the Bendigo Bank.

Two non-acquisitive prizes of $5000 cash are also to be awarded thanks to the Rotary Club of Collie along with a complimentary exhibition at the Collie Art Gallery.

Local accommodation provider Whispering Pines is presenting a non-acquisitive People’s Choice prize of $1000 cash at the conclusion of the exhibition.

The inaugural CAP has attracted interest from top-class artists from across Australia, as well as arts lovers and collectors.

Awards are being announced 2 March 2018.

An exhibition of the winners’ and finalists’ work is on show 10 am – 4 pm, seven days a week from 3 March until 15 April 2018. Entry fees apply.
