Perth Royal Art Prize – open for entries 

The Royal Agricultural Society of WA is thrilled to announce the return of the Perth Royal Art Prize. Entries are welcome for this sought after Prize with a prize pool of $24,500.

As one of the most prestigious art competitions in Western Australia, it is the leading prize for art based on landscape in the State. First prize is a generous $20,000 cash and non-acquisitive; providing the winning artist with the opportunity to sell their work at the prize exhibition.

Initially awarded in 1974, the 2024 Perth Royal Art Prize includes an emerging artist award which accompanies the main prize as well as two highly commended awards. 

Apart from the chance to showcase their work to the public, the exhibition presents an excellent opportunity for finalists to network; forge new connections, and discover new markets for their work, including through the extensive reach of the Prize’s online sales platform.

For the Perth Royal Art Prize’s curator, Sandra Murray, the return of the prize is of vital importance to the WA visual arts sector. 

“As the only prize in the State dedicated to landscape and solely for WA based artists, the prize supports artists with the welcome opportunity to be presented in a highly coveted award. We offer a prominent platform for artists to have their work in a curated, professionally presented exhibition.” 

The prize focuses on the interpretation of landscape as a significant genre. I encourage artists from all stages of their career from emerging to established to enter.”

The prize will be shown outside the Perth Royal Show time, offering free daily access to visit the exhibition at the Wilkinson Pavilion Gallery from July 13 to 21, with ample free parking.

Entries for the 2024 Perth Royal Art Prize for Landscape close midnight on Sunday May 19, 2024.
