The 2023 Women’s Art Prize is now open for entries!

“Each year Randwick City celebrates International Women’s Day with this inspiring art competition, celebrating women in Randwick City.

“This year, I’m particularly excited by the new category, which opens the competition to women who may not currently live, work or study within the LGA, but have a special connection to Randwick,” said Rafaela Pandolfini, Deputy Mayor of Randwick.

The annual competition is a special opportunity to shine a spotlight on women’s creative talents and to bring like-minded members of the community together to celebrate the unique contribution that women make to our City.

Winning and shortlisted artworks will be showcased in an exhibition at the Randwick Community Centre in honour of International Women’s Day, which takes place on 8 March.

There are three categories open for entry: Youth, Local and Open.

The Youth category is open to young women aged 12-18 years old, the winner and runner-up will take home $350 and $150 respectively.

The Local category is open to women over 18 years old who live, study or work in Randwick LGA. The Open category is open to anyone with a connection to Randwick LGA. Both of these categories carry a top prize of $1500 and a runner-up prize of $500.

Additionally, there are two Choice Awards: the Councillor’s Choice Award and the People’s Choice Award. The Councillor’s Choice Award is chosen by the women Councillors of Randwick, who nominate both a winner and a runner-up for the prize. The winner receives $300 and the runner-up receives $150. The People’s Choice Award, which goes to the artist whose work receives the most votes, is a single prize of $200.
