Quoted from the article:
Artists or their dealers, art centre coordinators and curators of public and private collections have only until 21 July to nominate via the Art Gallery of WA's website. The Awards will then be made and an exhibition of finalists open on 1 November.
Given that this initiative is part of the WA Government's extraordinarily generous 'Ignite' package for the arts - worth a total of $73m – there seems to be no time limit on these awards, which top the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award's (NATSIAA) top prize of $40,000 by 25%.
As a signatory to the Indigenous Art Code we are committed to ethical and transparent business dealings with Indigenous visual artists and abide by the standards set out in the Code.
