Macquarie Group Collection
The Macquarie Group Collection has been supporting emerging Australian artists for more than thirty years. The Collection's annual Emerging Artist Prize and associated exhibition offers support to a new generation of Australian visual artists, and is held in-person in Sydney and virtually. Artists are invited to enter original work(s) that reflect the Macquarie Group Collection theme, The Land and Its Psyche.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and pay our respects to their cultures, and to Elders past and present.
The 2022 Macquarie Group Emerging Artist Prize is now open for submissions and will close at 5pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) on Wednesday 5 October 2022.
There is no cost to submit an application. You can view the terms and conditions of entry here.
Up to ten artists will be selected as finalists and their submissions will be on display in the Emerging Artist Prize exhibition held at Macquarie’s global headquarters during the 2022 Sydney Open. Each of these artists will be awarded $A500 participation prize and a $A1,000 art transport voucher from International Art Services.
The winning artist will be announced at a special event on Monday 7 November 2022, and will be awarded $A20,000 prize money. Two Highly Commended Awards, each valued at $A2,000, will also be presented.
Both the winner and the finalists’ submissions will be showcased in the virtual exhibition that will open on Tuesday 8 November.
