2021 York Botanic Art Prize

Thursday 3rd June 2021 to Sunday 18th July 2021


Expressions of interest are now invited for the 2021 York Botanic Art Prize from artists working across a range of mediums, including, and not limited to, painting, mixed media, works on paper, digital, video, photography, sculpture, and textiles. Western Australia is renowned worldwide for its incredible diversity of plant life, with some of the richest biodiversity on the planet and a large percentage of species being endemic to this land. The York Botanic Art Prize, now in its second year, was conceived to celebrate this abundance of unique flora and highlight the importance of its conservation in the face of increasing threats. Botanical art in Australia has undergone somewhat of a renaissance in the last 10 years; however, unlike other botanical art prizes, we're not looking for scientific illustrations nor necessarily representative work - the only limitation being that work must directly relate to the theme of Western Australian flora and make reference to specific WA species. Artists whose work challenges traditional notions and conventions of botanical art, in a sense 'botanical art in the expanded field', are encouraged to enter. Prize Pool: $12,000 Winning entry announced 21 November Exhibition of finalists from 22 November 2021
