Art Prize


Since 2015, WHWBSW has hosted the South West International Women’s Day Art Prize in Warrnambool.

As an organisation dedicated to the pursuit of gender equality, we are pleased to offer a prize specifically for women that addresses the gender imbalance in galleries while providing an opportunity for women to express themselves through art, see their work exhibited, be rewarded and recognised for their work.

We believe the prize strengthens women’s voices and fosters improved mental health and wellbeing.
