Established in 2000, through the initiative and generosity of Ballarat South Rotary Club with ongoing support from the local community, the Ballarat Arts Foundation has continued to assist and encourage the aspirations of local, emerging, contemporary artists who have lived, worked or studied in the regional city of Ballarat.

Now as a biennial acquisitive award, the Foundation provides a unique opportunity for alumni visual artists, to exhibit alongside their peers in an important exhibition and receive the prestigious Ballarat Art Foundation’s $2,500 Eureka Art Award. Exhibitors can also attract the $500 People’s Choice Award.

Through granting awards to a broad range of talented artists in a wide variety of disciplines in the visual and performing arts, the Foundation continues to enable local contemporary artists to develop and advance their careers locally, nationally and internationally.

The $500 People’s Choice Award winner will be announced at the conclusion of the exhibition.
