Seaside Sculptures

Outdoor exhibition dates
22 July – 6 August 2023

Call for Artists

Call for Artists has now closed.

Artists we invited to submit original works and concepts for one of the largest biennial sculpture festivals in Northern Australia, Ephemera: Seaside Sculptures 2023.

In developing their proposals, artists were asked to consider the specific site for which the work is intended, with large scale works strongly encouraged.

Successful applicants will be granted an $5,000 Artist Fee to support them in creating their work and vie for the $1,000 People’s Choice Award, $10,000 Artistic Excellent Award or the $90,000 Ephemera Acquisitive Prize. The artwork awarded the Ephemera Acquisitive Prize will become a permanent sculpture in Townsville.

Competitive works will be on display along Townsville’s picturesque 2-kilometre beachfront, The Strand from 22 July to 6 August 2023.
