Join Newcastle Art Gallery for a livestream announcement of the KILGOUR PRIZE 2020 Winner by the Lord Mayor of Newcastle, Councillor Nuatali Nelmes.
One of Australia’s major art prizes, the KILGOUR PRIZE awards $50,000 for the most outstanding work of art selected by a team of judges, as well as a People’s Choice of $5,000 to the painting voted most popular by the general public.
This year the 30 finalists were selected from over 350 entries received from artists across the country. The 2020 finalists include artists from the ACT, NSW, Tasmania, Victoria, and Western Australia.
Funded by a bequest from artist Jack Noel Kilgour, the KILGOUR PRIZE has encouraged innovation within portrait and figurative painting since 2006.
