About

Presented by Hadley’s Orient Hotel, the Hadley’s Art Prize, Hobart is an annual, acquisitive Australian landscape prize, which offers $100,000 to the winning entry.

Dating back to 1834, Hadley’s Orient Hotel has a rich and fascinating history interwoven with art, particularly landscape art. The Hadley’s Art Prize, Hobart restores art to the hotel, contributes to the Tasmanian winter events calendar, generates interest in cultural tourism and promotes the work of contemporary Australian landscape artists.

Judged by a panel of art specialists, the prize is open to Australian artists over the age of eighteen working in two-dimensional media. Artists at all career stages are invited to enter. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists are encouraged to enter.

The Hadley’s Art Prize is awarded to what the judges deem to be the best portrayal of the Australian landscape.

Other prizes:

4 x highly commended awards, non-aquisitive $2,250 each presented by Jansz Tasmania, Scene Change, The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel & Lion

$1000 Framing Voucher prize presented by Wagner Framemakers, and a People’s Choice Award determined through a public vote during the exhibition.

The Hadley’s Residency Prize includes one month’s accommodation in Hobart CBD at Hadley’s Orient Hotel or sister property The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel and a studio in the Salamanca Arts Centre in 2021.
