Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award


WHAT : Call For Artists
DEADLINE : 3rd August, 2012

The JADA is a premier biennial arts event. In 2010 there were over 420 entries in the Award from which 46 works were selected for the exhibition. Selection is by a panel of artists and gallery professionals. The Judge selects the winner and acquisitions from the exhibition and announces their selection at the official opening. The 2010 JADA attracted entries from every state and territory in Australia and from a wide cross-section of established and emerging artists.

The JADA aims to promote excellence and innovation in Australian drawing. The major award of $15,000 is acquisitive, along with further acquisitions to value of $15,000. Acquisitions from the JADA enter the Grafton Regional Gallery’s nationally recognised collection of Australian contemporary drawing. The exhibition’s diverse and innovative works give it a broad appeal.
