Australia’s most significant thematic Christian art prize

The Mandorla Art Award employs a thematic spiritual inspiration that changes with each exhibition. These inspirations are defined by quotations from the Bible and all participating artists are requested to interpret these in their own way. In 2016, artists will interpret the theme ‘The Resurrection’ in figurative and abstract form and through various media.

This national award is open to artists working in all media and artists are invited to submit an application to be considered for this award. A selection panel will choose the finalists for the exhibition and an independent judging panel will award the prizes.

The award features a $25,000 Main Prize, two $5,000 Highly Commended Prizes and a $2,000 People’s Choice Award.

The Mandorla Art Award 2016 finalists will be showcased in an exhibition held at Linton and Kay Gallery, Perth from 15-24 July 2016. Artworks will be available for purchase.

Entries are now closed. Selected finalists and unsuccessful applicants will be notified by Wednesday 1 June 2016 of the selection outcome.
