The City of Hobart Art Prize is a key element of Creative Hobart, an overarching, whole-of-Council strategy that aspires to transform how we, as a City, celebrate and integrate arts and culture into all that we do. The City supports programs that: bring more cultural and creative activities out into the public realm, provide greater exposure to cultural activities, increase opportunities for the involvement of the community, provide attractors for cultural tourism and above all, make Hobart a truly vibrant place to live, work and visit.

This is based on a vision that contemporary culture contributes to the growth of the cultural and creative industries providing a real opportunity to strengthen community wellbeing.



In 2014 the City of Hobart Art Prize media were:


Contemporary glass including sculpture, objects and glassware.    


Any original print, conceived as such by the artist, including those employing traditional printmaking processes, digital technologies and monotypes.
