The annual Napier Waller Art Prize is open to former and current Australian Defence Force personnel. It encourages artistic excellence, promotes the transformative power of creativity, and raises awareness of the experiences and talent of service personnel. There is no required theme, and entrants are invited to use diverse media and original concepts.
This online exhibition presents finalists in the prize and those entries highly commended by the judging panel. The art works reflect the resilience, imagination, skill and humour that members of the Australian Defence Force are well regarded for. They also comment on the challenges and consequences of military service.
The general public are invited to vote online for their favourite work in the People’s Choice award, the winner of which will receive $5,000. Voting for the People’s Choice Award closes on Sunday 22 November 2020.
An exhibition of the artworks highly commended will be held at the Australian War Memorial from 25 September to 22 November 2020.
