ADELAIDE- Judges have chosen 100 finalists from a record 840 entrants who submitted works to the South Australian Museum. The competition invites artists around the world to create works of excellence that explore natural history themes. The winners will be announced on July 20.

The founder of the Prize and Exhibition Manager Mark Judd says “the artistic calibre of exhibition has grown enormously in the first 10 years of the competition, with record entries underpinning its popularity as a major annual event for Australian visual arts”.
