THE 66TH BLAKE PRIZE

Hopper, Switch and Upper Turbine Galleries
13 February - 11 April 2021

The 66th Blake Prize continues to encourage contemporary artists of varied styles and religious and spiritual allegiances to create significant works of art, which engage in conversations and negotiations concerning spirituality, religion and/or belief.


The Blake Art Prize attracts entries from artists around the world looking for exposure for their work, the opportunity to be hung in the exhibition, and to compete for various prizes including the $35,000 main prize.

Three prizes are selected by the judges for the best contemporary artwork that addresses the religious or spiritual.

1. The Blake Prize is a non-acquisitive prize of $35,000
2. The Blake Emerging Artist Prize is an acquisitive prize of $6,000
3.  The Blake Established Artist Residency - consisting of a residency and solo exhibition hosted by CPAC.

All prizes are strictly non-sectarian. Entries are not restricted to works related to any faith or artistic style. All artworks entered must have a recognisable exploration of faith, spirituality, religion, hope, humanity, social justice, belief and/or non-belief.
