The Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize


Deadline: February 14, 2024

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, Jade Oakley – Ravenswood Alumni – renowned for creating artworks that connect communities to their environment. Join us as we celebrate the finest women’s talent in Australia.
