As one of Australia’s richest and most prestigious printmaking awards, the competition underscores the importance of this arduous and exacting art form. Through the competition, Burnie’s permanent art collection recognises a vibrant art form of longevity, growing an exquisite boutique print collection with examples of work by some of Australia’s greatest artists.
