STENCIL ART PRIZE – WORLD CATEGORY
The inaugural World Stencil Prize is now open for entries. Deadline for entries is 15 August 2013.
The winner of the 2013 World Stencil Prize will take home a $2000 cash prize (Australian Dollars) and win the world title. The inaugural World Stencil Prize will exhibit alongside the Australian Stencil Art Prize at the Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Sydney from the 16 – 27 October 2013.
The Prize is run by the organisers of the Australian Stencil Art Prize. After many inquiries from international artists asking to enter the Australian Stencil Art Prize, it became evident that there was a demand for an international prize.
The Stencil Art Prize is the only large scale prize in the world that exists to recognise and reward stencil artists. The Stencil Art Prize has two entry categories – the Australian Stencil Art Prize (Australian artists only) and the World Stencil Prize (open to all artists).
From 2009 – 2012, the Australian Stencil Art Prize was the only art prize of its kind and will celebrate its fifth anniversary this year.
In response to mounting interest from international stencil artists, the organisers of the Australian Stencil Art prize have restructured the annual prize and launched the Stencil Art Prize in 2013. This year, for the first time, international artists will have the opportunity to submit artworks for judging through the World Stencil Prize category of the Stencil Art Prize.
