The Mandorla Art Award employs a thematic spiritual inspiration that changes with each exhibition.

These inspirations are defined by quotations from the Bible and all participating artists are requested to interpret these in their own way. In 2016, artists will interpret the theme ‘The Resurrection’ in figurative and abstract form and through various media.

This national award is open to artists working in all media and artists are invited to submit an application to be considered for this award. A selection panel will choose the finalists for the exhibition and an independent judging panel will award the prizes.
