Queensland Art Prize now open for entries.
April 1st, 2009

With the success of the 2008 LAUNCH Clayton Utz Travelling Art Scholarship, the Law Firm is once again giving the opportunity for an emerging Queensland artist to build their career with a $10,000 grant.

A winner will be chosen from up to 30 short listed artists, by Michael Snelling (curator of Someone’s Universe: The Art of Eugene Carchesio).

The winner will be announced on 2 June with an exhibition of the finalists at the Metro Arts Centre from 2 – 12 June 2009.
Applications close 1 May 2009 at 5pm. Download the application form here.
