The annual exhibition is open to all artists from SE Queensland and Northern NSW with a $5,000 prize awarded for a 2D work including painting, drawing, printmaking and photography. This is an important community exhibition designed to encourage participation and competition between both professional and amateur artists. The Milburn Art Prize will discover new and exciting artistic talent, whilst also showcasing outstanding works by established artists. We hope that the Milburn Art Prize may be a springboard into the arts industry for many artists.
