Kangaroo Valley Art Prize & Exhibition

    The signature event of Visual Arts in the Valley 2020 is the biennial Kangaroo Valley Art Prize & Exhibition (minimum $5,000 first prize, plus other prizes).

    The Kangaroo Valley Art Prize welcomes all original visual artworks, in any style and any medium across all subject matters.  We encourage interesting and provocative work, diversity, experimentation and challenges to traditional systems and boundaries by working with a range of contemporary concepts and subjects.  The Prize is open to all Australian artists or artists residing in Australia – local, regional, NSW and across Australia.
