Wagait Arts Group presents the Wagait Art Prize

The inaugural Wagait Art Prize is facilitated by the Wagait Arts Group and aspires to be an exciting and prestigious new event on the Territory Arts calendar.

Celebrating the creativity and diversity of Northern Territory art, with particular focus on the work of Cox Peninsula Artists, it is an inclusive event open to Northern Territory artists of all skill levels, across all media.

The theme for 2019 is ‘The Elements’.

Open section – open to all Northern Territory artists 

First Prize: $1000

Judges are Paul Johnstone from Salon Art Projects and Paul Johnstone Gallery, and David Collins from Proper Creative and Mayfair Gallery.

Winners will be announced during the Wagait Arts Festival on September 28, 2019.

Wagait Arts Festival was established in 2013 as a celebration of local artists, to provide a space for their work to be exhibited and a place to sell their art to the community.  This year Wagait Arts Group received a small amount of funding to employ a coordinator to build on the festival brand and create a vibrant and diverse event incorporating live music and dance, food and craft stalls and the inaugural Wagait Art Prize.

Wagait Arts Group is a community organisation that helps promote and lobby for the artists of Wagait Beach, Northern Territory. Our creative community’s talent is diverse and includes painting, crafts, sculpture, glassware, jewellery, ceramics, live music… and belly dancing!
