The Incinerator Art Award is an award of national significance with entries received from every state and territory in Australia. The award is a show case of 22 artists whose work interrogates contemporary culture in their practices to achieve and influence social change.

The award is inspired by the original architects of the Incinerator Gallery, Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony, who believed that art and architecture practices are ethical enterprises that should aim to bring about positive social change. 

The prize recipients of the $10,000 Boathouse Award and the $3,000 Incinerator Gallery Award will be announced at the exhibition’s opening night. 

The $1,000 People’s Choice Award will be announced at the exhibition’s conclusion. 

The Incinerator Art Award is proudly sponsored by The Boathouse.
