The Tom Bass Prize is the first national Australian prize for figurative sculpture.


This important and prestigious Prize is a celebration of the human form and its influence on today’s sculptors and is an acknowledgement of the influence Bass had as one of Australia’s pre-eminent public sculptors. 

The next Tom Bass Prize will be held 2 - 25 March at Juniper Hall, Paddington.

The inaugural exhibition was held in March 2016, in Sydney, in commemoration of what would have been Tom’s centenary year.

Tom Bass had a particularly close affiliation with the figure, and it is with this in mind that we created the $20,000 Tom Bass Prize.
