Call for Entries - Painting Prize

Held every two years, the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize attracts some of Australia’s most accomplished artists, awarding a generous acquisitive cash prize of $50,000. 

The Prize provides Bendigo Art Gallery with the opportunity to survey contemporary painting by established and emerging artists from across Australia. 

Works from the shortlisted artists are on display during the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize 2023 exhibition from November 2023 – February 2024.

The Prize was initiated by Mr Allen Guy CBE (1917-2007) to honour his brother Arthur Guy (1914-1945) whose life was tragically cut short whilst in service in New Guinea. Inaugurated in 2003, Bendigo Art Gallery acknowledges all those who have contributed to the success of the award and look forward to the continuation of this prestigious and highly regarded acquisitive prize.
