The Local Art Prize is part of the annual Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize, introduced in 2015. The Acquisitive Art Prize includes an Acquisitive Prize of $15,000, a Local Art Prize of $3,000, and a People's Choice Award of $1,000.
Council is reviewing the criteria for the Local Art Prize. Currently the Local Art Prize is open to any artist with a demonstrated connection to Bayside, defined as the municipality of Bayside, Victoria.
A demonstrated connection is considered to be an artist who lives or lived, works or worked, or studied in Bayside, or the work entered into the Prize is of local subject matter.
