Marie Corella Ellis OAM (1918-2003) was a dressmaker and long-term resident of Fortitude Valley. Born in the Valley in February 1918, Marie was named after the Victorian-period celebrity author Marie Corelli. For 60 or more years, Marie resided at 101-103 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley, where Jugglers Art Space is now situated. Marie contributed a lifetime of service to the community, inspired by her love of the Girl Guide movement, children and arts & crafts.

The recipient of many awards throughout her life, in 1979, Marie was recognised for services to handicapped children through the Girl Guide Association of Queensland, with the award of the Order of Australia Medal.

Marie passed away in March 2003 and The Marie Ellis OAM Prize for Drawing was subsequently established to help perpetuate Marie’s memory, her love of art and her dedication to helping others.

The Marie Ellis OAM Prize for Drawing further seeks to encourage excellence in drawing as an important foundation for any arts practice.

25 Finalists will be chosen by a specially-selected judging panel and their works exhibited at Jugglers Art Space during August 2016.

The Major Prize Winner & Honourable Mention, selected by the judges, will be announced at the opening night of the exhibition. The People’s Choice Award is determined by visitor vote and announced at the closing party for the exhibition.

– Major Prize Winner is awarded $4000 in acquisitive prizes
– Honourable Mention is awarded to the value of $500
– People’s Choice Award is awarded to the value of $500

Entries open March 7th and close June 13th, 2016.
