Art Awards & Grants

The Queensland Regional Art Awards (QRAA) is an annual visual arts prize and exhibition for established and emerging artists living in regional and remote Queensland. The program aims to provide a platform for further professional development.

From dirt roads to rock pools, luscious rainforests to local festivals, Queensland is a state that inspires exploration. It’s full of diverse personalities, local legends and hidden gems valued by tourists and locals alike.

This year, artists are asked to embrace a spirit of adventure to discover something unique about their own community or one that they visit within the state.

The theme is to be addressed in an accompanying artist statement of 100 – 150 words. All entries are eligible for the $10,000 Flying Arts ‘Art for Life’ Award and for selection in the touring exhibition.

Enter by 29 June to qualify for Early Bird Prices.
