NOW Contemporary Art Prize is a Biennial Visual Arts prize exhibited at Shoalhaven Regional Gallery. The prize aims to inspire artists to consider contemporary art as more than something created recently, and to reflect on the ways contemporary art has, and continues to, push boundaries and comment on our world and the artist’s place in it.
2019 will be the fourth time the prize is held and will be the biggest to date, with a $10,000 non-acquisitive first prize. Artists across Australia are invited to submit works in any media. The prize is judged by a panel of representatives from the Arts, with finalists being exhibited at Shoalhaven Regional Gallery Nowra from 5 October – 23 November 2019.
This year’s selected artworks will respond to the exhibition theme "pushes boundaries, responds to our world, is dynamic and personal"
