The Gallipoli Art Prize Organising Committee invites any eligible artist to submit a painting for the Gallipoli Art Prize, which will be administered by the Gallipoli Memorial Club Limited (the “Club”) and under the control of the Gallipoli Art Prize Organizing Committee.
Prize money of $20,000 is awarded to the artist of the winning entry subject to the conditions below. The acquisition of the work and its copyright remain property of the Gallipoli Memorial Club Museum Fund.
The Gallipoli Art Prize will be awarded to the artist who best depicts the spirit of the Gallipoli Campaign as expressed in the Club’s “Creed”.
The Club’s Creed is:
We believe that within the community there exists an obligation for all to preserve the special qualities of loyalty, respect, love of country, courage and comradeship which were personified by the heroes of the Gallipoli Campaign and bequeathed to all humanity as a foundation for perpetual peace and universal freedom.
Each competitor must either have been born in Australia, New Zealand or Turkey or hold Australian, New Zealand or Turkish citizenship.
Each competitor may, at their expense, submit one piece of original work produced in either oil, acrylic, water-color or mixed. The term of reference to be used is the spirit of the Gallipoli Campaign as expressed in the Club’s Creed.
The entry must be delivered at the competitor’s expense to: The Gallipoli Art Prize Organizing Committee, Gallipoli Memorial Club Limited, 12 Loftus Street, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia between the hours 10AM and 4PM on Sunday 13, Monday 14, and Tuesday 15 March 2016.
