Midsumma and Australia Post Art Award
Presented by Midsumma Festival and Australia Post
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 2022.
Award categories
Major Award - $6000
People’s Choice Award provided by Australia Post - $1,000
Bundoora Art Prize Award - a paid residency/exhibition opportunity
Australia's leading queer visual arts award
In its seventh year, this selection of queer artists from across the country showcase their personal and political perspectives of the world.
Midsumma Festival is delighted to present this award and exhibition event as part of our ongoing partnership with Australia Post. Celebrating diversity and inclusion is important to Australia Post. They are committed to supporting their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer employees and driving positive change to create more inclusiveness not just throughout their workforce but throughout the wider community.
