For the first time ever, join Watson Arts Centre for the announcement of the 2024 Bald Archy Prizewinner in Canberra! This $10,000 prize is generously sponsored by the Museum of the Riverina, the current administrators of the Bald Archy Prize.
The Bald Archy Prize, Australia’s leading satirical art extravaganza, was born in 1994 as a whimsical take that more serious competition. This prize throws open its canvas to artists of every stripe, inviting them to unleash their creativity in portrait paintings teeming with humour, dark satire, light comedy, or caricature.
Known internationally as the only art competition in the world to be judged by a sulphur-crested cockatoo named Maude, the satirical essence of this event captures the irreverent, larrikin spirit that defines the Australian ethos, resonating with individuals from all walks of life.
Now, entering its 28th year in 2024, the Bald Archy Prize beckons artists to carry forward the rich tradition of revelling in laughter while basking in the beauty of art.
Free entry, RSVP ESSENTIAL.
