2 Danks Street Award for Contemporary Art Criticism

This is for a Gallery space in Sydney, but there is no reason why people from Banyule and surrounding areas cannot enter it.

This is what the website has to say about it.

1.    Objective The 2 Danks Street Award for Contemporary Art Criticism has been established by the permanent galleries of 2 Danks Street Waterloo, in association with Artist Profile Magazine and All for Art: Art For All, to foster new writing on, and extend discussion about, the visual arts.  This award is initially being given for writing about exhibitions at galleries in the 2 Danks Street complex.  In subsequent years, the intention is to extend the award to exhibitions in other Sydney based commercial or private contemporary art galleries.

2013 Banyule Works on Paper Award

The closing date for the 2013 Banyule Works on Paper Award is fast approaching.  Entries are due on the 14th of August.

The Banyule art collection is a contemporary collection of art works by leading and emerging Australian artists. While it includes a range of media it is distinguished by its collection of works on paper. The Banyule Award for Works on Paper capitalises upon this strength by developing this aspect of the collection further. It is an acquisitive prize of $4,000 and is held biennially.

The theme for the award this year is “Of Light: Reflections on Colour”
