The $15,000 acquisitive Burnie Print Prize is an initiative of the Burnie Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) in Tasmania. The prize is BRAG’s flagship exhibition, celebrating the region’s connection to paper-milling, paper-making and paper-using by supporting and showcasing the best of contemporary printmaking in Australia and Oceania.

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.

The major prize winner will be announced at the opening of the exhibition on Friday 26 March, 2021. The exhibition will run until Saturday 1 May, 2021.
