City of Hobart Art Prize

City of Hobart Art Prize

The City of Hobart Art Prize categories, for which the main prizes are awarded, change every year. The 2006 categories are Jewellery and Printmaking. The guidelines for these categories are as follows:

The application of the jeweller’s art to adornments and objects, including the use of jewels, gems, precious and non precious metals and other materials.

Any original print, conceived as such by the artist, including those employing traditional printmaking processes, digital technologies and monotypes.


Two acquisitive City of Hobart Prizes of $7,500 (one in each category).

The Moorilla Winter Collection – Tasmania Prize. This acquisitive prize of $5,000 sponsored by Moorilla Estate was established to honour the memory of Jason Winter, Moorilla Estate’s late wine maker. It is open to artists, crafts-people and designers who are selected for the final City of Hobart Art Prize exhibition and who were either born, are presently residing in, or have resided for a period of five years or more, in Tasmania. The winner will also receive a dozen bottles of the Moorilla Estate limited release premium wine upon release. Because of the acquisitive nature of the prize, the winners of the City of Hobart Art Prizes will not be considered for the Moorilla Winter Collection – Tasmania Prize.

Both the acquisitive City of Hobart and the The Moorilla Winter Collection – Tasmania prizes include return air travel from within Australia to Hobart (if won by eligible entrants living interstate) to attend the exhibition opening and boutique waterfront accommodation at Moorilla Estate on the night of the exhibition opening (for interstate prize winners or Tasmanian based prize winners living outside of greater Hobart). The provision of these travel and accommodation benefits will be at the discretion of the Hobart City Council and Moorilla Estate.

The People’s Choice Prize. A non-acquisitive prize of $1,000 for the most popular work on exhibition.

The members of the judging panel for the City of Hobart Art Prize 2006 are:
Roger Butler, Curator Prints and Drawings, National Gallery of Australia
Patricia Anderson, Art critic and writer for The Australian newspaper
Craig Judd, Co-ordinating Curator of Art, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

The Moorilla Winter Collection – Tasmania Prize will be judged by a panel comprising the City of Hobart Art Prize judges and two representatives from Moorilla Estate.
