The National Farm Art Sculpture Award is for sculptures that showcase and capture the uniqueness of the Australian landscape, flora, fauna, and lifestyle of living on the land. 

These sculptures must be created predominantly from metal and represent the art form “farm art”. The re-use of old machinery and equipment is encouraged. 

We invite you and your associates to participate in this non-acquisition award. First prize in the National Farm Art Sculpture Award receives $10,000 prize money, with their art work remaining their own property.
