The Bald Archy Prize 2018

Watson Arts Centre is delighted to once again present the Bald Archy Prize, that eccentric icon of the Australian art calendar. Created in 1994 as a spoof of another more serious competition, the Bald Archy Prize provides a genuine opportunity for artists of all styles and standards to create portrait paintings of humour, dark satire, light comedy or caricature.

Known internationally as the only art competition in the world to be judged by a sulphur-crested cockatoo named Maude, the satirical side of this event has its basis in the irreverent, larrikin Australian comic comment.
