The Stencil Art Prize is the largest stencil event in the world. It began in 2009 and was then known as the Australian Stencil Art Prize which accepted stencils from Australian artists only. In 2013 it expanded to accept international entries in response to mounting interest from stencil artists around the globe. The prize exhibits shortlisted finalists in Sydney each year and aims to recognise and reward stencil artists. It is an acquisitive art prize. Read more here.
