This year the Friends of the University of Newcastle are generously sponsoring two Acquisitive Student Art prizes of $1,000 each.

The Student Art Prize assists in the growth of the University’s art collection, ensuring that it continues to provide our region with relevant and contemporary work for future generations to enjoy.

This is a great opportunity for students to have their art work represented in a public collection. The prize is open to all students of the University of Newcastle, in all media.

An award exhibition at the University Gallery will profile the finalists from 14 September to 1 October 2016, with the announcement of the winning entries on 28 September at 5pm.

The Friends of the University of Newcastle play a vital role in the development and support of scholarships for the University and fundraise consistently for various needs of the University’s community.

Entries close Friday 19 August at 5:00pm.
