Elaine Bermingham National Watercolour Prize in Landscape Painting

The Elaine Bermingham National Watercolour Prize in Landscape Painting is a unique triennial art prize that aims to celebrate excellence and innovation in the watercolour medium.

This non-acquisitive prize is open to all Australian artists and selected finalists will be exhibited in the Webb Gallery, located within Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art at South Bank, Brisbane.

Prizes:

The overall winner will receive a $20,000 cash prize generously donated by Elaine Bermingham. ‘Landscape’ is defined as any form of land or environment and does not exclude peopled landscape, seascape or urbanised and rural habitat. Artworks entered do not need to be representational; innovative and abstracted explorations of watercolour are encouraged.

Two highly commended prizes of $5,000 each will also be awarded, a substantial increase from the previous time the prize was awarded in 2017
