We invite you to join Lucio in his support of Marlene Antico OAM, founder of the Paddington Art Prize, for this great opportunity to congratulate the 2017 winner, meet many of the artists,  and enjoy some of Lucio’s famous hospitality at this always popular annual lunch.

This year’s judges are Edmund Capon AM OBE,  Ann Thomson & Nick Vickers

A $25,000 National acquisitive prize for a painting inspired by the Australian landscape, now in it’s 14th year. A $5,000 non-acquisitive young artist’s prize for artists aged 18 to 30, is offered again this year. In addition, UNSW Art & Design will offer a selected artist the opportunity to create a limited edition print and a $2,000 prize will be presented to the Honourable Mention recipient. A $1,000 gift certificate from the Sydney Art Store will be presented to the Highly Commended recipient. As well, a selected artist will be given the opportunity to enjoy a 1 week retreat at Sofala Cottage. This year we are introducing the People’s Choice Award with a $1,000 gift certificate sponsored by Charvin Oils.
