About the Hadley's Art Prize...
"Presented by Hadley’s Orient Hotel, the Hadley’s Art Prize, Hobart is an annual, acquisitive Australian landscape prize, which offers $100,000 to the winning entry. Dating back to 1834, Hadley’s Orient Hotel has a rich and fascinating history interwoven with art, particularly landscape art.
The Hadley’s Art Prize, Hobart, seeks to contribute to the Tasmanian and Australian art scene, generating interest in cultural tourism and promoting the work of contemporary Australian landscape artists.
Judged by a panel of art specialists, the prize is open to Australian artists over the age of eighteen working in two-dimensional media. Artists at all career stages are invited to enter. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists are encouraged to enter.
In 2018 the Hadley’s Art Prize will be awarded to the best portrayal of the Australian landscape." ~ www.hadleysartprize.com.au
