Now in its 18th year, The Gallipoli Art Prize invites artists to respond to the broad themes of: community, perpetual peace and universal freedom, loyalty, respect, love of country, courage and comradeship as expressed in the Gallipoli Memorial Club’s creed.

The concept of conducting art prize competitions in both Australia and Turkey to commemorate the legacy of those heroes who fought on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915 was conceived in 2004 and developed during 2004-2005.

The first official announcement of this project was made on 15 April 2005 by the then Prime Minister of Australia, the Honorable John Howard MP, of the intention to conduct the art prize competitions in Australia and Turkey.

The project has achieved over a decade of successful competition due to the wonderful support from:

Artists in Australia, New Zealand and Turkey; and Governments and Communities in Australia and Turkey.
