Greenway Art Prize

The GreenWay Art Prize

The GreenWay Art Prize celebrates the precious green corridor in Sydney’s inner west and aims to capture the essence of the GreenWay through visual art.

Now in its tenth year, the GreenWay Art Prize is a much loved art event which attracts hundreds of entries across a range of mediums including painting, sculpture and photography. Artists have been invited to submit works for the competition that capture the qualities of the GreenWay and celebrate the urban environment, sustainable transport and community connections through visual art.
