The Hahndorf Academy Adelaide Hills Landscape Arts Prize 2017

The Hahndorf Academy is proud to present a new arts prize for 2017 to celebrate our region. We invite artists to engage with and to interpret their experience of the Adelaide Hills and the diversity of the landscape, the natural, rural or urban and the ever-changing seasons.

The Adelaide Hills Arts Prize 2017 encourages artists to express their connection with the Hills in ways that highlight and capture their awareness of the dynamic environment and the landscape with works in any medium.

The arts prize is open to artists who reside in South Australia. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional works in any medium are accepted with works created from 2016 to 2017 and with works available for sale. All entries will be presented to a panel of judges and The Hahndorf Academy will host a finalist exhibition from 4 November – 10 December 2017.
