Established in 2001, the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize attracts strong support from artists, collectors and critics and is the first national acquisitive prize for an original, freestanding sculpture of up to 80cm in any dimension.
Over 500 entries from Australian and international artists are received annually and approximately 45 finalists' works are exhibited at the historic Woollahra Council Chambers in Double Bay, Sydney, Australia.
The main award each year is the acquisitive 'The Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize' which expands the Council's permanent public collection. On display all year round for the community to enjoy for free, visitors can discover some of the world’s most exciting contemporary sculptures and often be introduced to the most innovative artists working in the medium.
