The most important drawing prize in Australia. It was established in 1993 as an
initiative of the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation to encourage excellence in drawing and
draughtsmanship and to honour a great Australian artist who excelled at drawing - William
Dobell (1899-1970). This year the prize money has been increased to $20,000.
Supplementing the annual competition exhibition will be an exhibition commemorating
the first ten years of the Prize, accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
