Entries are still open – Art Prize Entry Form

The Art Prize has been postponed along with the festival cancellation. We have decided to defer the River of Art Prize award and exhibition until it can be mounted and judged in collaboration with our partners at Narooma Gallery, Narooma School of Arts.  

Entries are still being accepted with the exhibition planned for 2022. Entries will remain open until the revised exhibition date is announced.

 We will keep you informed and you can check our website for updates.

Artists who have already entered: Your River of Art Prize entry remains valid and we will hold and automatically include your work when we are confident the Art Prize exhibition can be safely mounted, judged, marketed and viewed by the public.
