The panel commented

"For decades Hill's artistic and curatorial practice has been pivotal in the contemporary art movement of Noongar people: she has been creating a 'visual essay' of experiences and recording histories of her people's strength and culture,” said Kimberley Moulton, Project Officer/Curator for Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum and one of this year's judges.

Carly Lane, AGWA Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, congratulated Hill on the Award, “Congratulations to Sandra Hill on her win of the People’s Choice Award. For years, Sandra worked hard at building and refining her practice, which is now paying dividends. Her work and life stories embody both trauma and resilience. These conditions, along with her courage and artful articulation of hidden histories, makes her work understandably popular.”
