Germany has a museum dedicated to dachshunds. New York has a similar kind of site, but celebrating all kinds of canines. And, in Sydney, we have the Woof Art Prize — the annual award for paintings, drawings and sculptures of those barking four-legged cuties that have long been considered humanity's best friend.

Firstly, art- and pooch-loving folks submit their pieces, which, in 2020, were judged by artist Harrie Fasher. Next comes the free exhibition of said pupper-centric works — aka the fun part for everyone else — which is currently on display at Art Est in Leichhardt until Monday, October 12.

More than 80 works are presently available to view, so get ready to peer art doggo-focused masterpieces of all shapes and sizes. We're assuming that none of them feature dogs playing poker, but you will see portraits of rescue dogs, pictures of dogs watching TV, contemplative pupper paintings and just a whole heap of adorable canine faces covering the venue's walls.

And, yes, you can take your dog along to take a look.

The Woof Art Prize 2020 is on display until Monday, October 12 at Art Est, 4/67-69 Lords Road, Leichhardt.
