Burnie Print Prize

 

The Burnie Print Prize is a major national art award that celebrates the immeasurable craftsmanship of printmaking. The prize has earned the Burnie Regional Art Gallery a national reputation for its exploration of the expressive and aesthetic possibilities of the medium. It is open to artists living and working in Oceania.

The winning piece will become part of the gallery’s collection, taking its place among works by artists such as Lloyd Rees, Sidney Nolan, Brett Whitely, James Gleeson, Arthur Boyd and Ben Quilty. With a growing collection of over one thousand artworks, the gallery focusses on works of art on paper to honour the vital role of paper in Burnie’s history.
