Chilean-born artist Juan Davila has taken out the $50 000 Benalla Nude 2014 Art Prize announed at Benalla Art Gallery this morning.

There were 32 finalists including a mix of established artists and lesser-known painters.
They were selected from more than 600 entries submitted from across Australia since entries closed on February 21 for the bold new art prize.
The non-acquisitional prize is the brainchild of Benalla artist Ivan Durrant who said he believed the competition would put the town on the nation’s art world map.
Artistic styles for the inaugural prize varied from realism to expressionist in a variety of mediums from traditional oil to acrylic, water colour and mixed media on canvas, paper, board, paper and linen.
