With a prize pool of over $30,000 split amongst several categories, The Doyles are seen as a nationally significant Australian art award in the highly competitive art prize calendar. The primary prize money is awarded in the Landscape category, in keeping with the favoured subject of its namesake, d'Arcy Doyle, to perpetuate his memory and to encourage others in the creation of quintessentially Australian Art.
As the longest running fine art prize on the Gold Coast, we also showcase our other categories - Still Life, Figurative, All Ability and Juniors. These categories represent many genres of representational art practice allowing for diversity and inclusivity amongst our exhibition culture.
In 2023 we delivered over $70,000 back into the arts community by way of prizes and sales results. This input directly affects the viability of creatives continuing their work. Arts and culture form a large part of the backbone of our society and we see ourselves guarding and growing this historically significant event for future generations.
