Art prize

This is your only opportunity to view the works submitted for the GSA Art Prize – and it's your chance to vote for your favourite.

Join us in the Gryphon Gallery (1888 Building) to witness the graduate student community's artistic output, where each entry expresses how students are more than just what they're studying. With a total of $2,000 cash prizes to be won, submissions will be passionate and varied – whether they're drawings, paintings, sculptures or handcrafted inventions.

  • Vote for your favourite artwork on the night, and help decide the winner of the Punter's Prize ($250) for popularity!
  • One lucky person who takes part in the voting process on the night will be randomly chosen to receive a gift hamper valued at over $100!

Registration is required for entry – tickets can be printed or displayed on smartphones.
Drinks and canapés will be provided for all registered attendees. 

Prize money for 2016:

  • 1st prize:   $1,000 cash
  • 2nd prize:   $500 cash
  • 3rd prize:    $250 cash
  • Punter's prize: $250 cash (decided by attendee votes)
