Australian Art – Any Medium – All Women

The Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize is an annual acquisitive prize that was launched in 2017 to advance art and opportunity for emerging and established women artists in Australia. It is the highest value professional artist prize for women in Australia. 

There are three prize categories – the Professional Artist Prize of $35,000, the Emerging Artist Prize of $5,000 and the Indigenous Emerging Artist Prize of $5,000. 

There is also a People’s Choice Award of $2,000 plus an art pack valued at $500.

Artists are asked to enter an artwork that best reflects their art practice - there is no theme.

Artwork judging is overseen by Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize Patron and acclaimed artist, Jennifer Turpin. Join us as we celebrate the finest women talent in Australia.

 

 "As Principal of Ravenswood I am delighted to present the Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize. Inspiring and connecting women visual artists, this significant Art Prize will strengthen the profile and legitimacy of careers in art for current and future generations of Australian women." 

— Anne Johnstone, Principal, Ravenswood

 "As Chairman of the Ravenswood Foundation, it is an honour to launch the 2024 Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize. The prize has been established to raise the profile of this country's great women artists and to assist in helping the next generation of artists reach their fullest potential. I am confident the Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize has and will play a major role in championing women artists across Australia and provide the platform for future generations of artists to flourish." 

— John McLean, Ravenswood Foundation Chairman
