National Arts and Disability Awards 2019- 21

As of 31 March 2020

With immediate effect, the Australia Council for the Arts have suspended many of their investment programs currently or due to open. Suspending programs will allow Council to concentrate efforts on responding to the COVID-19 crisis situation faced by artists and arts organisations.

This program has been suspended.

The Australia Council National Arts and Disability Awards 2019-21 celebrate the work and achievements of both established and young artists, and the significant contribution of artists with disability to the vibrancy of Australian arts.

The Council’s research has highlighted the importance of profiling, celebrating and acknowledging the achievements of trail blazers and leading lights at all stages of career development. These prestigious national awards are one of the ways we do that.

The National Arts and Disability Award (Young Artist): $20,000

Key dates

Closing date: Tuesday 7 April 2020 at 11.59pm (AEST)
