The Mission to Seafarers has hosted the Maritime Art Prize at the heritage-listed building in Docklands since 2003.
Last year more than 200 entries were received and 107 were shortlisted from a highly competitive field – including a greater number of emerging artists than previous years – all of whom responded to the theme ‘The Relationship of Humanity to the Sea’. The jury were impressed with the high standard and diversity of entries, ranging from traditional to contemporary mixed media.
The annual event is a major fundraising initiative of the Mission to Seafarers Victoria (MtSV).
