The Alice Prize is the Northern Territory's largest contemporary art prize and welcomes artists from around Australia. The Prize was first awarded in 1970, after a group of volunteer administrators led by businessman and MLA Bernie Kilgariff, established a national art competition to bring contemporary art to Central Australia.

It is a national contemporary Art Award of $25,000 to the winner, with artists represented from all states of Australia. The judge will be Dr. Michael Brand, Director of the Art Gallery of NSW. The Tammy Kingsley Peoples' Choice Award of $1000 is also offered.
