Entries for Warrnambool’s most prestigious portraiture art prize are now open.

The annual partnership program involving WDEA and the Warrnambool Art Gallery is offering $4000 in prize money awarded via judge’s selections.

Inspired by the Archibald Portrait Prize, Warrnibald raises funds and awareness for WDEA’s Artlink program, an arts therapy initiative run for people living with a disability or disadvantage.

Entries are open to south-west residents. Entries close 16 July with exhibition set to open 22 July.
