The Incinerator Art Award is an award of national significance with entries received from every state and territory in Australia. The award showcases the work of selected artists who make art to promote positive 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.
