2021 West Torrens Art Prize

Published on 15 March 2021


The COVID-19 pandemic has provided us all with many challenges during the past year. Nationally, statewide and on a local level in West Torrens, we have been required to deal with changing conditions, often at short notice, and adapt to new ways and ideas.

It's fitting that the theme for the 2021 West Torrens Art Prize is 'Resilient West Torrens'.

Resilience isn't just about what we do in times of adversity; it can be what we do in our day to day lives that shows how resilient we are.

The West Torrens Art Prize has been encouraging budding artists to submit works around various themes for the past five years and offers a $10,000 prize to the winning artist, plus other amounts in various categories.

Paintings, photographs, mixed media and digital artworks reflecting on the theme 'Resilient West Torrens' are being sought this year, which is opens on 30 April and closes on 30 September 2021. Artworks must be 2D only and must be produced after 1 January 2020.

There are four categories in the West Torrens Art Prize:

  • West Torrens Art Prize - $10,000.
  • The Emerging Artist Prize - $2,000.
  • The Senior High School Student Prize - $500.
  • The People's Choice Prize - $500.
