The Koorie Art Show is our annual event showcasing the diverse talent of Victoria’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists in one inclusive space. This year we are proud to present the 9th Koorie Art Show 2021.
The Koorie Art Show is a non-acquisitive award exhibition open to all Victorian based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists aged 17 years and older. For our aspiring young artists aged between 5 and 16 years, we will also be presenting the 4th Koorie Art Show for Kids and Youth. Further information on the 4th Koorie Art Show for Kids and Youth including entry forms and award categories can be found HERE.
This year, artists in the 9th Koorie Art Show are encouraged to submit up to two artworks, but all artworks must have been produced in the last 18 months.
All submitted entries will be included in the exhibition (except where they do not meet our Terms and Conditions – see further below) and eligible to be considered for one of several cash awards. This year, the total cash pool for the 9th Koorie Art Show is $32,000. The awards will be judged by an independent panel of three Victorian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander community members (see the Koorie Art Show Judging policy below). Further information on the award categories, cash prizes and judges will be posted shortly.
