Artists are invited to submit up to two paintings made ‘en plein air’ of a New South Wales subject, painted at any time, for consideration for the Prize.

Entries will be accepted via electronic submission, with an image of completed works sent by email or CD-Rom. Semi-finalists who are selected from the electronic entries by a panel of judges, will be then notified to deliver their works to the Parliament of NSW for the finalist round of judging. All artists will also have a chance to participate in a Salon des Refusés if they are not selected in the final round.
