What is the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize?
The Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize is one of Australia's most significant annual prizes for painting. It was established in 2015 and each year adds an exceptional contemporary painting to the Bayside Art and Heritage Collection. The prize aims to promote art and artists as a valuable part of the Bayside community.
The $15,000 Acquisitive Prize and $3,000 Local Art Prize are judged by a panel of industry experts. Previous winners include Kevin Chin (2015), Peter Westwood (2016), Michael Vale (2017), Moya McKenna (2018), Dani McKenzie (2019) and Alec Baker (2020/21).
There is also an annual People's Choice Award, valued at $1,000. The Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize People’s Choice Award is given to the artist who receives the greatest number of votes cast by the general public at the Gallery. Voters are eligible to cast a single vote only. Bayside City Council staff members are restricted from voting.
