All finalists will have their submissions showcased in a six week exhibition at NSW Parliament Fountain Court Gallery, hosted by NSW Minister for Aboriginal Affairs the Hon. Leslie Williams MP. 

MAX Employment Managing Director Deborah Homewood said selecting the finalists for the 2016 competition was an intense process.

“I certainly didn’t envy the task the judges had ahead of them. They had a huge amount of talent to select from this year. We had a lot of amazing entries which was great to see,”
she said.

“A huge thanks to 2015 NAIDOC Artist of the Year Daren Dunn, 2015 Competition Winner Belynda Waugh, and MAX Indigenous Programs Manager Courtney Morgan for their time and effort judging an incredible pool of talent.”

The winners will be announced at the exhibition opening, with the Major Prize Winner walking away with $3,000, and the Youth Prize Winner receiving $2,000

‘Our Communities’ – Finalists of the 2016 MAX National Indigenous Art Competition will be open for public viewing at the NSW Parliament Fountain Court Gallery from 15 June – 21 July 2016.
