The $20,000 Blacktown City Art Prize, celebrates its 25th year in 2020.

“Now in its 25th year, the Blacktown City Art Prize is a major cultural event in Western Sydney,” Mayor Bleasdale said.

“We have some incredibly talented homegrown artists living in Blacktown City and it is always wonderful to see their work featured alongside pieces entered by artists from around our diverse and multicultural country.”

“The calibre of work submitted is always incredibly impressive and, while it’s been a challenging time for many.”

With a total prize pool of $20,000 on offer, the Blacktown City Art Prize will culminate in an exhibition of the finalists’ work at the Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre from Saturday 28 November 2020 until January 2021.

The top award at the 2019 Blacktown City Art Prize was taken out by Blacktown resident Jamie Eastwood for ‘Blacktown Native Institution 1823-2018 Then and Now’, a mixed media artwork made from acrylic paint, collage and paper ochre.
