Bald Archy Prize 2012 is a spoof of that more serious competition and known internationally as the only art competition in the world to be judged by a sulphur-crested cockatoo named Maude!  Bald Archy Previous Winners

  • 12 April – 6 May
  • Independent Theatre Foyer, North Sydney
  • Regional dates and venues below

The Bald Archy Art Awards were created in 1994 and provide artists with a genuine opportunity, ranging from the hilarious to the bizarrely vulgar, to create portrait paintings of humour, dark satire, light comedy or caricature.

Kerry Packer, Amanda Vanstone, Edmund Capon, Shane Warne, Dame Edna Everage, John Howard and Pauline Hanson, Robbie and Gai Waterhouse, Rupert Murdoch, Jeff Kennett, Cardinal George Pell, Tony Abbott, and Ian Thorpe have been winning subjects over the years.

Bald Archy Prize is  known internationally as the only art competition in the world to be judged by a sulphur-crested cockatoo named Maude.  The satirical side of this event has its basis in the irreverent, larrikin Australian comic comment, with great appeal to people from all walks of life, the reason why the exhibition of finalists keeps breaking attendance records wherever it is shown.

Bald Archy Art Prize is celebrating its 19th year in 2012 with the exhibition begining in Canberra before going on tour throughout Eastern Australia.   Bald Archy website
