The National Teacher-Artist Prize 2022 is a national contemporary two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) art prize sponsored by Zart Art. It aims to encourage, recognise and celebrate the visual arts practice of primary and secondary school educators. This marks the first art prize for teachers.

The National Teacher-Artist Prize was established to reward teachers by celebrating the value and quality of their individual art practice, supporting both their professional teaching practice and personal growth needs. The prize is a recognition of those who foster rich learning environments within school communities and promote the fundamental importance of the arts in children’s education. The prize aspires to be one of the most valuable events on the art and education calendar, being the only dedicated art prize for educators in the world.

The National Teacher-Artist Prize will be held annually. Entrants must be Australian residents who are registered teachers, and currently working in an Australian school and over the age of 18.
