Midsumma & Australia Post Art Award Submissions

Presented by

Midsumma Festival & Australia Post


About the opportunity

Since its inauguration in 2016 the Midsumma and Australia Post Art Award has quickly established itself as an important award in the ecology of the arts. With finalists selected from across the country, the non-acquisitive annual award is a survey of outstanding queer artists working across mediums reflecting their potent personal and political perspectives on the world.

The art award is open nation-wide to artists in any medium, though please take into consideration the current environment in Australia. We encourage anyone in Australia to apply and talk to us if you have any concerns. Finalists’ work will be exhibited as part of Midsumma Festival 2023 (between 21 Jan – 12 Feb 2023).

The award categories include:

  • Major Award – $6000
  • People’s Choice Award provided by Australia Post – $1,000
  • Bundoora Art Prize Award – a paid artist development and exhibition opportunity
