In 2014, there were four different entry categories: Painting, Drawing, Printmaking and Sculpture. The major prize of $5000 is sponsored by Hornsby Shire Council, which permanently acquires the winning work.

Hornsby Shire Council also offers the Hornsby Emerging Artist Award as part of the Hornsby Art Prize. This is only open to emerging artists over the age of eighteen who are resident in Hornsby Shire. An emerging artist is roughly defined as an artist who has practised as a professional artist continually for less than five years and wishes to further develop their chosen art form.
