Entries have now closed. Click here to see the full list of winners

The Art Prize was established in 2010 to capture the essence of the Greenway through visual art and to celebrate the vibrancy, creativity and community spirit of the Inner West.

Now in its eleventh 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.

This is a national prize, open to all artists submitting work within the terms and conditions of the prize.

The GreenWay Art Prize is a curated show which profiles the work of outstanding new and emerging artists as well as established professional artists.

The Art Prize shines light on the GreenWay and seeks to capture its essence through art.

Artworks selected will have a direct connection to the GreenWay and Cooks River in subject matter, and/or make a persuasive case in the accompanying artist statement for the entry’s concrete or conceptual links.
