Exploration of the Relationship Between Humanity and the Sea
Since 2002, the Mission to Seafarers Victoria maritime art prize has exhibited the work of over 700 artists and is Australia s leading maritime art award. Prize money awarded to date has exceeded $150,000 and the organisation has raised over $200,000 toward the provision of seafarers welfare services in Victoria. The Mission to Seafarers Victoria has been providing welfare services for merchant seafarers in the Port of Melbourne since 1857.
The Maritime Art Awards & Exhibition, proudly supported by ANL, promotes excellence in maritime and seafaring subjects in art. The ANL Art Prize is an important event made possible, with thanks to naming rights sponsor ANL, corporate sponsors, the contributing artists and the individuals who give their time and expertise to curate, judge and select the works.
All 2017 submissions can be viewed on our online gallery in October and are available for purchase! Artists have generously submitted their artwork for sale and 33% of all proceeds raised will go towards the charitable work of the Mission to Seafarers.
The exhibition is open at the historic Seafarer s Centre at 717 Flinders Street, Docklands.
Come along and view beautiful art depicting the sea and maritime subjects. You can purchase any of the artworks on display. Vote for your favourite in the Peoples Choice Award. A donation to aid the mission s work is always welcome.
