Event Details

From humble beginnings 36 years ago, “The Singleton Art Prize” has matured into one of the largest regional art prizes in NSW and one of the most prestigious. It continues to feature prominent and up-and-coming Australian artists. In a typical year an average of 800 visitors pass through the Singleton Civic Centre over five days to enjoy up to 650 paintings, resulting in substantial art sales and great exposure for our sponsors.
The success and continuing growth of this event provides valuable opportunities for both Rotary and our partners to positively contribute to the wider community. The opportunity for the enjoyment of Art, and the encouragement of up and coming artists greatly enrich the whole community. Financially the benefits are also significant, over the past five years almost $100,000 has been raised from sponsorship & painting sales. This money is returned to the local community every year by way of an advert in the local paper calling for applications for funding for local community projects.
