The Glover Prize is a $50,000 prize for a landscape painting of Tasmania (including seascapes and cityscapes). The prize is named in honour of noted artist John Glover (1767 – 1849).

The winner of the annual prize receives $50,000 as well as a bronze maquette of John Glover by Peter Corlett (valued at $5,000). There is also a prize for the People’s Choice to the value of $3,000. The Glover Prize is awarded annually by The John Glover Society for the work judged the best contemporary landscape painting of Tasmania. Landscape painting is defined in its broadest sense. The aim is to stimulate conversations about the meaning and possibilities expressed in the words landscape, painting and Tasmania.

The 42 prize finalists are displayed during the Glover Prize Exhibition, which is held on the March long weekend each year.
