9×5 Landscape Prize 2021

9×5 prize finalists 2021

We are Delighted to Announce the

Winners of the 9×5 Landscape Prize for 2021

First Prize: Bronwyn Rodden for The Forest at Dusk

Judges’ comments: The painting has a beautiful translucency and is inventive in its composition. A wonderful design and control of colour, giving great creation of depth on a small scale. Delivered with bold and deliberate translucent brush strokes, it has an immediacy which is difficult to achieve on a small scale.

 Second Prize: Landon Watts for Garden with Old Laundry Trolley

Judges’ comments: Garden with Old Laundry Trolley has a wonderful painterly quality with the composition interspersed between short brush strokes. Taking the viewer on a familiar journey, with a great sense of fun. The use of yellow is beautifully lively and the vertical format well handled. The whimsical shapes of everyday “bits” collectively drawing the eye in for a second look.

High Commended: Damon Kowarsky for Naam

Judges’ comments: Great design and rhythm within a small area. The densely forested area is superbly broken up by the large block of simplified area to the lower left. The intermittent suggestions of buildings breaking through and the differing structural elements on the skyline are wonderful considered elements.

Commended:  Jock Young for Afternoon Geilston Bay, Karl Lorenz for Black Rocks and Lisa Nolan for Dawn at Learmonth


Congratulations to our Finalists and thank you to all who entered this year. We hope the experience of creating artworks in this small format has rewarded you all with a different perspective and some much-needed creative inspiration during a very difficult year. 

We hope you will join us again next year when we hope to return to “real life” with an exhibition in the gallery at WWAS. In the meantime, enjoy the gallery of Finalists and remember all works are available for sale.

Our judges, artists Susan Baird and Paul McCarthy, spent many hours choosing the 101 finalists from over 600 entries. Commenting on the entries our judges noted:

“This year’s 9×5 entries were a wonderful collective of varied and interesting works. We would like to congratulate everybody for submitting works, making it a very rewarding task deciding on the final exhibition. There were many stand out pieces amongst those submitted and the overall standard was quite high. Deciding on the finalists was a very big task and as judges we were looking for design, composition, and execution.”
