Hornsby Shire Emerging Artist

The Hornsby Shire Emerging Artist Award

The Hornsby Shire Emerging Artist Award was delivered through the Hornsby Art Prize from 2012 – 2022. It was created to celebrate and support emerging and early career local artists, whilst sharing locally developed bodies of work with the Hornsby community. The award was given to the emerging artist who produced the most outstanding work, in any category, and who was a resident of the Hornsby Shire. The Hornsby Shire Emerging Artist Award included a cash prize and a fully funded solo exhibition at Wallarobba Arts and Cultural Centre, sponsored by Hornsby Shire Council.
