The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory has hosted the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATSIAA) since 1984.
The aim of the award is to recognise the important contribution made by Indigenous artists from regional and urban areas throughout Australia, working in both traditional and contemporary media. It’s an important showcase for both established and emerging artists and has come to be regarded as one of the premier national events in the Australian Indigenous art calendar.
There are six categories of prizes:
- Telstra Art Award – $50,000
- Telstra General Painting Award – $5000
- Telstra Work on Paper Award – $5000
- Telstra Bark Painting Award – $5000
- Wandjuk Marika Memorial 3D Award (sponsored by Telstra) – $5000
- Telstra Youth Award – $5000
The Telstra Youth Award was introduced for the first time in 2014. Its inclusion embraces innovation and changing trends in the contemporary Indigenous art market.
