Last call for Rick Amor Drawing Prize

The Rick Amor Drawing Prize was established in 2010 by one of Australia's most eminent living artists. It is held every second year at the Art Gallery of Ballarat in Victoria. The award is worth $10,000 and is acquisitive for the Gallery collection.
In making the decision to sponsor the Prize, Rick Amor said "Drawing is the most direct and intimate expression of an artist's sensibility. It reveals the temperament, touch and vision of the maker in a way that is rarely matched by any other form of visual art, and it is the best way I know for an artist to record sights and ideas. I hope that this prize gives people one more reason to keep drawing.
The award is for small drawings and each entry must be no larger than the most readily available watercolour paper, which measures 56cm x 76cm. Amor says that he chose this conditions because "restricting the works to a modest size allows the viewer an intimate experience of each drawing without the distraction of competing scale."

The Prize draws entries from some of Australia's most eminent artists. In 2012, there were 672 entries from across Australia, of which 76 were as finalists to be included in the exhibition.
