About the Art Prize
Now known as the Maritime Art Awards & Exhibition, the award promotes excellence in maritime and seafaring subjects in art and assists in raising the profile of the 1.5 million merchant seafarers responsible for transporting more than 90 per cent of world trade.
Global efforts to improve conditions for seafarers are constant, as has been the provision of welfare services by the MTSV since 1857 in the Port of Melbourne. The ANL Art Prize is an important event 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.
All works exhibited are for sale and pay a 33% commission toward supporting seafarers’ welfare.
Entries close Monday 2nd September 2013.
The exhibition is open daily for public viewing from 4th - 31st October, 2013 at the historic seafarers' centre at 717 Flinders Street, Docklands from 12 noon – 7pm.
