The Pro Hart Outback Art Prize is an annual acquisitive competition. The prize showcases work in any media which reflects the spirit and diversity of the Australian Outback.
The prize consists of an Acquisitive First Prize, a Non-Acquisitive Second Prize and a People’s Choice Award with a total prize pool of $23,000, sponsored by Mrs Raylee Hart (The Hart family) and the Broken Hill City Council.
Through a vigorous selection process, the panel anonymously selected 23 finalists from the 474 entries that were submitted. This was a difficult task given the strength of pieces entered and the wide range of media utilised.
