Call for entries: Poochibald™ Art Prize 2024

Schoolhouse Gallery

23 Jun - 15 Sep 2024

Tickets Free

Our favourite show of the year is back and calling for entries! The Poochibald is an opportunity to show your appreciation and admiration for dogs. Whether they are big or small, scruffy or tidy, if they take you for a walk ’round the block rather than the other way around – we just can’t seem to stop loving them.

Now in its 12th year, our annual Poochibald exhibition is a beloved community show not to be missed.

Anyone can submit a painting, drawing, print, or small sculpture and be in the running to win.

Be inspired by dogs of all kinds – celebrity dogs, childhood pals or that trusty chonk keeping your toes warm on the couch right now. What says I love you more than an award winning portrait? (…maybe some liver treats…) Go on then! What are you waiting for!?

Featuring both an adult and two junior sections, there are great prizes.

The exhibition runs from 27 September – 20 October 11am – 5pm Wed – Sun.

Entries close Sunday 15 September.

Winners will be announced at the exhibition opening on Thursday 26 September at 5.30pm at the Schoolhouse Gallery. All welcome

Adult 1st prize $300 voucher, runner up $150 voucher

Children – Junior (up to 12yrs) 1st prize $100 voucher, runner up $50 voucher

Children – Senior (12 – 16 yrs) 1st prize $100 voucher, runner up $50 voucher
