The Heysen Prize for Landscape - Acquisitive $15,000

 People’s Choice Prize - Non-acquisitive $1,000

The Hahndorf Academy Heysen Prize was established in 1997 to commemorate the life and work of the internationally renowned, artist, Sir Hans Heysen (1877-1968).

Hans Heysen lived on a property nearby Hahndorf town and documented village life in drawings and watercolours. He had a deep connection with the natural landscape and is best known for his paintings of majestic Eucalypt (gum) trees surrounding his property as well as the vast landscapes of the Flinders Ranges in the mid-north of South Australia.

Heysen actively conserved the mature trees on the land surrounding his home and studio at Hahndorf and, through his art, drew attention to the natural beauty of the Australian landscape and significantly contributed to an awareness of the need to protect the natural environment.

The Hahndorf Academy Heysen Prize for Landscape invites artists to express their deep connection with – or concern for – the Australian landscape and environment. We wish to acknowledge that the word 'landscape' here includes all possible aspects of the natural, rural, and urban landscape.

This contemporary art prize is a biennial event celebrating emerging, mid-career and established artists and their connection to landscape and place.

The prize is open for 2D and 3D works.
