2017 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize

Entries now open!

The 2017 Call for Entries is now open for the 17th Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. Artists are invited to present images of their proposed or completed original and freestanding sculptures. The submitted art works must also be non-site specific, three-dimensional and constructed of durable materials up to 80cm in any dimension.

Total prize money for the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize has increased this year from $19,000 to $24,000, awarded across four categories: the main Acquisitive award ($20,000); Special Commendation award ($2,000); Viewers’ Choice award ($1,000); and Mayor’s Award ($1,000).

Last year we received 614 entries from national and international artists. A total of 46 finalists’ works were presented in the exhibition, with the main award going Sydney artist Todd Robinson for his work, Psychic Staircase, an eight-kilogram plywood staircase atop which sits an orange balloon that droops as the force of gravity appears to bear down on it. Psychic Staircase originates from an ongoing series of balloon inspired sculptures by Mr. Robinson that explore sculptural presence, materiality and conditions of audience reception.
