John Leslie Art Prize 2020
The John Leslie Art Prize is one of Australia’s most prestigious and valuable prizes for landscape painting. With a first prize of $20,000 (acquisitive) the Prize consistently attracts the highest calibre of artists working in Australia. An additional prize of $1,000 (non-acquisitive) is awarded to the best Gippsland work. The Prize is named after the Gallery’s long time made Patron, John Leslie OBE (1919—2016), and continues through the generous ongoing support of the John Leslie Foundation.
