Art Competitions Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast Region
Over the many years of teaching, students frequently asked about competition opportunities. So in 2001, I felt it was time that an Australian-wide comprehensive single source for art competitions in Australia and New Zealand was due. This birthed the "Art Directory" enumerating over 1500 competitions, published in book and online format since 2001.
Due to the mounting work, Discovery Media integrated the information to their "Art Prizes Australia". It is there where you find art shows for all of Australia and overseas. If you like to submit an art show NOT listed here, we would love to hear from you by filling in the form at the end of this page for submission. Note that the show must be in the area of the Gold Coast, Brisbane or Sunshine Coast to be accepted in our listing.
