The Environmental Art & Design Prize presents an opportunity annually for the Australian community to engage with the unique insights that artists and designers bring to our understanding of the natural world and the environmental challenges we face.

The Northern Beaches has a strong relationship with the natural environment and sustainable living, as well as a long history of excellence in art and design. In bringing these themes together over the past three years, local creatives and diverse participants from across Australia have been inspired to contribute to an exciting and relevant exhibition that connects audiences with new ideas, innovative practices and critical reflection. The exhibition of finalists’ works engages audiences with contemporary arts practice, reaffirming the Northern Beaches as a vibrant hub of contemporary arts and culture.

Over the past three years, since 2021, the Environmental Art & Design Prize has enabled the works of 647 Australian artists and designers to be shown to the public across our three Northern Beaches exhibition spaces, engaged almost 10,000 audience members from the local area and beyond, attracted  sponsorship, put prize money into the hands of 48 artists and designers in the Open, Youth and People’s Choice awards, and worked with eight key industry professionals to judge the Prize and announce the awards. 

We are delighted to announce that the judges for 2024 are fashion designer Genevieve Smart (Ginger & Smart), industrial designer Trent Jansen and visual artist Khaled Sabsabi.

Watch this space to learn more about how the prize will be evolving in 2024.

Call-out open 20 March – 19 May 2024.
