About the Australia Council National Arts & Disability Awards

The Australia Council National Arts & Disability Awards 2019-21 celebrate the work and achievements of established and emerging artists, and the significant contribution of artists with disability to the vibrancy of Australian arts. Two awards will be presented annually – The National Arts & Disability Award (Established Artist) $50,000 and The National Arts & Disability Award (Emerging Artist) $20,000. The new program responds to the Council’s research, which highlights the importance of profiling, celebrating and acknowledging the achievements of trail blazers and leading lights at all stages of career development. These prestigious awards recognise outstanding contributions by Australian artists in all areas of practice.

Applications for the Australia Council’s National Arts & Disability Awards have closed for 2019.
