The City is calling for all emerging artists to submit original artworks for an opportunity to exhibit their work to the public and a chance to share in $7000 worth of prizes.

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty acknowledged the value of the award for up and coming artists in WA.

‘The Emerging Artist Award is a well established art prize in Western Australia and over the past 11 years has given that well needed boost to many developing artists,’ she said.

In a new initiative, the winner of the Soco Realty People’s Choice Award will have their work replicated, enlarged and pasted up at the underground car park on Angelo Street.
