Macquarie Group Collection

Macquarie Group Emerging Artist Prize

The Macquarie Group Collection has been supporting emerging Australian artists for more than thirty-five years. The Collection's annual Emerging Artist Prize offers support to a new generation of Australian visual artists.

Artists are invited to enter one original work that reflects the Macquarie Group Collection theme, The Land and Its Psyche.

The associated exhibition will be held in The Art Space a new public gallery opening in Macquarie's new global headquarters in Sydney later this year. The exhibition will also be available for viewing online.
