The overall Prize Winner and two Commendations will be announced on Friday 19 August (6-8 pm) at the official opening of the churchie national emerging art prize exhibition at QUT Art Museum.

Established in 1987 the churchie national emerging art prize is a highly regarded emerging art prize dedicated to innovation and excellence across contemporary, traditional and new media genres. Artists from all Australian states and territories are selected as finalists for the exhibition in a professional public gallery space. The overall winner is rewarded a $15,000 cash prize donated by long time sponsors Brand+Slater Architects. The Sponsors, media and arts community are invited to preview ‘the churchie’ prior to an official opening reception where the winner is announced and works are available for sale to the public. The annual non-acquisitive prize is an initiative of Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie).

‘the churchie’ profile and reputation has developed over 28 years of relationship building and sits credibly within the Australian art community as a result of the standard of work accepted, and the high profile of appointed judges. The prize offers professional development opportunities for emerging artists by showcasing their practice to peers, collectors, critics, museum curators, the media and the community at large. A retrospective exhibition ‘20/20’ was held at the Museum of Brisbane in 2007, and in 2010 the churchie national emerging art prize partnered with Griffith University Art Gallery at Queensland College of Art, South Bank, one of Australia’s premier cultural precincts.

‘the churchie’ continues to grow in profile and significance, making waves for those new at art, and giving a push along at a crucial moment in the career path of new Australian artists.
