ABOUT

The National Teacher-Artist Prize 2021 is a national contemporary two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) art prize sponsored by Zart Art. It aims to encourage, recognise and celebrate the visual arts practice of primary and secondary school educators. This marks the first art prize for teachers.


The National Teacher-Artist Prize was established to reward teachers by celebrating the value and quality of their individual art practice, supporting both their professional teaching practice and personal growth needs. The prize is a recognition of those who foster rich learning environments within school communities and promote the fundamental importance of the arts in children’s education. The prize aspires to be one of the most valuable events on the art and education calendar, being the only dedicated art prize for educators in the world.


The National Teacher-Artist Prize will be held annually. Entrants must be Australian residents who are registered teachers, and currently working in an Australian school and over the age of 18.



JUDGING

The National Teacher-Artist Prize 2022 will be judged by a panel of four guest judges:


Maree Clarke - Artist
Vernon Ah Kee - Artist
Roxanne Lillis - Inaugural NTAP Winner
Margaret Baguley - President Art Education Australia


Judging will occur in two phases. After individually reviewing each digital entry, two first round judges will convene to select around 50 shortlisted finalists. After which, our next two guest judges will review each of the 50 finalist works and select the winners for each prize category. At the prize exhibition opening the overall winner, runner-up and seven state-based Highly Commended prizes will be announced.


The People’s Choice prize is decided by public vote. Voting is open until 16th April 2022 with the winner to be announced shortly following the conclusion of the finalist exhibition.
