The Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize was launched in 2017 to advance art and opportunity for emerging and established female artists in Australia. There are three prize categories: the Professional Artist Prize of $35,000 — Australia's highest value art prize for women in Australia; the Emerging Artist Prize of $5000; and from 2020, the Indigenous Emerging Artist Prize of $5000.
Artwork judging will be overseen by Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize Patron and acclaimed artist, Jennifer Turpin, Kathryn Hendy-Ekers, Edwina Palmer and special 2020 Guest Judge, Hadyn Wilson. Winners will be announced at the exhibition Opening Night on 29 May 2020. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the finest female talent.
