About the Award
The Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards, the richest Indigenous arts prize in the country, is a national award founded in 2008 to celebrate the breadth, diversity and excellence of art from all corners of Indigenous Australia.
The awards acknowledge the significant and ongoing contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists make to Australian art, culture and society.
These national awards, now in their fourth year, are open to all adult Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists currently living in Australia, working in any theme or media, including (but not restricted to) painting on bark, canvas and paper, prints, sculpture, fibre art, ceramics, glass, photography, and digital media.
These Awards are comprised of a group exhibition of outstanding art and three non-acquisitive awards:
• Western Australian Indigenous Art Award of $50,000
• Western Australian Artist Award of $10,000
