A National Acquisitive Prize for Contemporary Australian Painting
About the prize
Entering its 10th year in 2018, The City of Albany Art Prize is an important event in the cultural calendar of the Great Southern region, bringing the best of Australia’s contemporary painting practice to Albany. The Prize is integral to the ongoing development of the City’s already sizeable art collection via the major acquisitive prize, which is sponsored by The Jack Family Charitable Trust.
The Jack Family Charitable Trust and the Trustees, alongside the City of Albany, continue to recognize the important role that the Arts play in the broader community.
Albany is located 409 km south of Perth within the hub of a 40,000 square kilometre region known as the Great Southern.
For thousands of years, Noongar Aboriginal people of the Mineng group lived by Albany's
sheltered waters. Much of their story is lost in time but Noongar people play an increasingly
prominent role in Albany today. In 1826 Albany became the first European settlement in Western Australia.
Bounded by the Southern Ocean, the picturesque Stirling and Porongurup Ranges and the Great Southern hinterland, today Albany is one of WA’s most popular holiday destinations with a thriving cultural centre.
