Female artists aged 18–35 working in any media are invited to enter the Ellen José Art Award, a $15,000 non-acquisitive award
Ellen José (1951–2017) was a pioneer in Australia’s urban Indigenous art movement and a radical activist and social justice campaigner. The Award is a partnership between the Ellen José Memorial Foundation and Bayside City Council, and aims to support young female artists in the early stages of their career.
Six shortlisted artists will have the opportunity to present a new or existing body of work at Bayside Gallery in mid-2022.
Judges: Max Delany, Artistic Director & CEO, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) and Professor Marcia Langton AM, Associate Provost at the University of Melbourne.
