Nominations close Tuesday 2 October.

“We recognise the power of the arts to challenge, provoke, and inspire. These awards are a way of acknowledging the role artists play in shaping Australia’s cultural identity”

Rupert Myer, former Australia Council for the Arts CEO.

Nominations are closing soon for the 2019 Australia Council Awards and the 2019 National Indigenous Arts Awards

These awards are open to outstanding artists across art forms, and are available for those both emerging and established in their careers. Nominations require artist CVs, and letters of support are encouraged as an accompaniment. 

Recipients of each award receive cash support, as well as joining an impressive group of alumni.  If you know an artist who would benefit from this level of recognition, please nominate now.

You may know of an artist who should be nominated or you may like to forward this on to your colleagues. Nominations are accepted from individuals and organisations. Nominees may not self-nominate. 

The Australia Council is committed to providing access for all to our programs and services. Please contact us and we will endeavour to assist in meeting your access needs.
