Gallipoli Memorial Club $20 000 Art Prize call for entries

The Gallipoli Memorial Club is calling on Australian, New Zealand and Turkish artists to submit paintings to the $20 000 Gallipoli Art Prize to commemorate the spirit of the 1945 Gallipoli campaign. Gaining recognition as one of Australia’s major art prizes, The Gallipoli Art Prize Competition commenced in 2006 and will be conducted annually up to and including the 2015 Centenary Year.

Artworks in the competition do not need to reflect warfare or the Gallipoli conflict. Rather, the $20 000 prize is awarded to the artist who best depicts the spirit of the Gallipoli Campaign as expressed in the Gallipoli Club’s ‘creed’ – “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”. Works can also relate to any armed conflict in which Australian, New Zealand or Turkish soldiers have been involved.

Please refer to for full conditions and entry form.
