The 2019 call for entries for the Stencil Art Prize — the largest and longest running stencil event on the globe, is currently open to all artists.
The Stencil Art Prize is a touring exhibition of the world’s biggest, best and most daring artists that use the technique of cutting stencil layers, and painting a design.
Entries for the $10,000 (AUD) cash prize close on 1 April 2019. The 10th Stencil Art Prize Exhibition will be held from the 12 to 23 September 2019 at Gaffa Gallery in Sydney and then the exhibition go will tour to Regional Galleries around Australia for a period of up to two years.
The objective of the Prize is to:
- Recognise and reward stencil artists
- Provide recognition for stencil art as an artform in its own right
- Foster creative connections between stencil artists from different countries and cultures
- Archive stencil art
The Stencil Art Prize began in 2009 with a start up grant from Marrickville Council and has continued to grow with support from the global stencil community, participating galleries and sponsors. Beginning as an Australian-only exhibition, the Prize moved to accept international artists in response to a strong demand in 2013.
