Now in its second year, Belle ArtStart is a prize with a difference, as entrants aged 16 to 25 must be willing to sell their work at the event, held last night at a warehouse space in Sydney’s Alexandria, and all submissions must be painted on the same size canvas.
Second prize of $5,000 went to ‘The Flight Home’ by Phoebe Halpin, 25, a graduate of the National Art School, while 21-year-old Anna May Henry, also a graduate of the National Art School took home $2,500 for her painting, ‘Gumnuts’.

This year we had close to 100 entries and all were of a high standard. I want to thank all those that submitted pieces and congratulate our three outstanding winners.”
The winning works and the event coverage will be featured in the May issue of Belle – on sale April 17. A catalogue of all the works is available from belleartstart@bauer-media.com.au. Bauer Media is the market leading publisher of homes magazines in the country, with brands including Australian House & Garden, Homes+, Real Living and Belle.
