Presented by the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation

A new $100,000 national art prize supporting contemporary artists under 40.

The Ramsay Art Prize invites entries from Australian contemporary artists under 40 working in any medium. Held every two years and presented by the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation, the Ramsay Art Prize is an ongoing acquisitive prize. Finalists will be selected by an international judging panel. The selected work will be included in a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia.

The 2017 Ramsay Art Prize finalist exhibition will be complemented with a People’s Choice Prize supported by sponsor Lipman Karas. The People’s Choice Prize is a non-acquisitive cash prize of $15,000 chosen by a public vote.

‘Opportunities for artists at pivotal moments in their career have the potential to change the course of Australian art.’
Nick Mitzevich, Director, Art Gallery of South Australia
