Sydney, Australia, May 13, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Cliftons, the leading provider of training and event venues today announced finalists in its 2014 Art Prize Competition.

The annual art competition supports local artists and encourages corporate patronage of the arts across Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Since 2001, the Cliftons Art Prize has provided established and emerging artists across Asia Pacific the opportunity to receive international exposure via Cliftons' broad network of corporate event venues. In addition, one winner at each of Cliftons ten venues will be awarded AUD$2,000 and the overall Cliftons Art Prize winner awarded AUD$10,000.

Entries in the 2014 Art Prize closed on 9th April, with the competition attracting over 730 pieces of artwork, the highest number of submissions received in its 13 year history.

A panel of independent judges spent several weeks reviewing the artists' submissions with the short listed artists being invited to exhibit their artworks at Cliftons' CBD locations across Asia Pacific. The exhibitions run from Monday 2nd June to Thursday 3rd July, ending with exclusive awards evenings at each Cliftons venue where local and regional Cliftons Art Prize winners will be announced.

"The judges of this years Cliftons Art Prize had a difficult task selecting only 10 finalists per location. The 2014 submissions show some exciting new talent across the region and we're excited to be exhibiting so many brilliant works over the coming weeks. The fun really starts now as we prepare for the 4 week on-site exhibitions at our Cliftons venues across Asia-Pacific," said Andrew Cameron, Cliftons Managing Director and founder of the Cliftons Art Prize.

"The Cliftons Art Prize is an exciting part of our annual calendar and we're looking forward to displaying this year's finalists and outstanding submissions in the lead up to the awards evenings in early July. The purpose of the Cliftons Art Prize is not only to provide emerging and established artists with an international platform on which to share their artistic talents, but also to bring art into the corporate environment. We do this by exhibiting the finalists and winners artwork in our training and meeting venues, which in turn provides a mentally stimulating environment for all our event attendees," he said.
