The GreasyBalds Art Prize

Australia’s only art competition inspired by a burger joint.

You’ve heard of the Archibald Art prize and probably even the Bald Archies – but now it’s time for local talented designers, illustrators, and underground artists to enter The GreasyBalds, a competition presented by Canberra’s most loved burger and pizza joint – Grease Monkey.

The brief

It’s up to you, the artist, to create a piece that is Grease Monkey inspired.

If you’re unfamiliar with the brand and our personality (where have you been hiding?), we…

  • Take our burger flippin’ seriously, but not ourselves
  • Love a laugh
  • Push the boundaries without breaking the rules
  • Are experimental
  • Are proudly Canberra born and bred
  • Welcome everyone to a Greasys venue

Grab some inspo

Take inspiration from our socials, website, menu, locations, the Grease Monkey himself, our vibe… it’s all on the table.

The brief for you is to take our brand’s personality and throw it into an artwork… if you can.

The medium is up to you!

All entries are to be submitted digitally. If you have developed a non-digitally based artwork, you will be required to submit no more than 4 photos of your artwork as part of your submission.
