EXHIBITION AND PRIZE SELECTION

The Omnia Art Prize selection panel selects around 250 artworks from all works submitted to appear in the exhibition and the online shop.

The panel seeks to shortlist artworks representing a range of price brackets and mediums so the significant prize money should not deter artists from submitting smaller and/or more affordable works.

All selected artworks will be exhibited and available for sale at St Kevin’s College, Toorak, Victoria from Friday, May 24 – Sunday, May 26, 2024. The Art Prize will be awarded by a guest judge at the Gala Night. All shortlisted artists are warmly invited to attend the event (and receive one complimentary ticket). The Audrey Culliver People’s Choice Award is announced at the conclusion of the exhibition.

All artworks must be available for sale for the full exhibition period. The organisers will retain 30% of the nominated price for any works sold at the exhibition, or as a result of the exhibition.

The Artist agrees to make all shortlisted artworks available for sale for the duration of the exhibition and then for a further six weeks through the online shop.
