Now in its 23rd year, the Blacktown City Art Prize is a highly valued prize, attracting entrants from across Australia. Each year, the Prize receives a record number of entries.
For many artists, the Blacktown City Art Prize is an opportunity to participate in a competitive environment and share their creative practice with new audiences.
This year, we are proud to announce that an impressive 30% of the finalists in the 2018 Blacktown City Art Prize are UNSW Art & Design alumni.
UNSW Art & Design is recognised as one of the world’s leading art and design schools, with an outstanding record for producing critically acclaimed artists, designers and media creators.
Congratulations to all of the finalists in this year’s Prize, including those alumni listed below.
