Naked & Nude 2017 – CALL FOR ENTRIES


The 13th Biennial Manning Art Prize: Naked & Nude is a collaboration between the Manning Regional Gallery and the Friends of the Manning Regional Gallery. After 25 years, the Manning Art Prize has become a prestigious national event on the Australian Arts Calendar and is open to artists in a variety of mediums. The lucrative event this year carries a $20,000 prize pool. The winning entry will be acquired by the Friends of the Manning Regional Art Gallery and donated to the Manning Regional Art Gallery permanent collection. The theme for this year is Naked & Nude.

Naked & Nude refers to two things:
Firstly the great tradition of the Nude: a person who is bare with no covering or decoration.
Secondly, a wider definition: something that is revealed, laid bare, unmasked or vulnerable.
