Stencil Art Prize launches first ever international art prize for stencil artists

The Australian Stencil Art Prize, which was formerly only open to Australian stencil artists (2009 – 2012), has rebranded and relaunched as the Stencil Art Prize. The prize now features two entry categories:

Australian Stencil Art Prize (Australian artists only)
World Stencil Prize (All artists)

Stencil Art Prize launches first ever international art prize for stencil artistsThe winner of each category will receive a $2000 cash prize (AUD) and exhibit alongside finalists at the Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Sydney Australia from the 16 – 27 October 2013.

The decision to relaunch the Australian Stencil Art Prize as a much broader prize, came about after mounting interest from international stencil artists asking to enter the Australian prize.

The Stencil Art Prize is an acquisitive art prize, with the winning art work in each category being acquired by the Stencil Art Prize. Winning art works will be re-exhibited in a Best-Of Exhibition in years to come.

All artworks exhibited at the Stencil Art Prize, except for the winners, will be for sale at the Chrissie Cotter Gallery and online at www.stencilartprize.com

Previous winners of the Australian Stencil Art Prize include Miss Link (2009), E.L.K (2010 – ‘Saul Williams’ stencil featured above), 23rd Keys (2011) and Ralf Kempken (2012).
