THE 2018 ANL MARITIME ART PRIZE
The Mission to Seafarers Victoria invites artists to enter the ANL Maritime Art Awards & Exhibition with the goal of promoting maritime and seafaring subjects in art. Artists working in painting, drawing, collage and mixed media* are invited to enter works exploring the theme of the relationship of humanity to the sea. Entries are open internationally to artists both emerging and established.
The ANL Maritime Art Prize aims to raise awareness of the experience of 1.5 million merchant seafarers responsible for transporting more than 90 per cent of trade to Australia. The Maritime Art Prize is our major fundraising event at MtSV, contributing to the provision of welfare services to seafarers. The Mission to Seafarers has operated since 1857 in the Port of Melbourne. The Maritime Art Prize is made possible with thanks to naming rights sponsor ANL, corporate sponsors, the contributing artists and the individuals who give their time and expertise to curate, judge and select the works.
Now in its 16th year, the exhibition has showcased the work of over 700 artists and is Australia’s leading maritime art prize. Our total prize pool is valued at $26,000 this year.
