Spring Sculpture Prize 2023

Submissions for the lot19 Spring Sculpture Prize 2023 have now closed. However, the Young People’s category will remain open until 1st October.

Since its inception in 2006, the Spring Sculpture Prize has been a key event in the Central Victorian artistic calendar. With a fabulous festive afternoon opening, over $6,000 worth of prizes, independent judges and a three-week exhibition, the prize is beloved by artists and visitors alike.

There are many prizes as part of the competition, including the $2,000 lot19 major prize, adjudicated by a panel of independent judges. The Ron Anstey Memorial Prize and the other prizes generously offered by local businesses are judged separately, including a kids prize celebrating younger artists. There is also a ‘People’s Choice’ prize, first introduced in 2022.

Entries for the 2023 Spring Sculpture Prize are open now and close on 21 September.
