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. The theme for 2014 is ‘Elijah meets God’, taken from 1Kings 19:11b-13.
Two categories are offered — The Mandorla Art Award for artists aged 18 and over, and The Mandorla Youth Art Award for artists aged 16 to 25 — with a total prize pool of $42,000.
