The Collection’s annual Emerging Artist Prize and Exhibition celebrated its 10th year in FY2022. In recognition of this milestone, 10 finalists were selected from a record number of submissions, enabling more emerging artists to be supported.
The event was once again held virtually, with strong external engagement following a successful social media campaign.
The exceptional quality of the finalists’ work reflects the significant depth of talent to be found among Australia’s next generation of promising artists. Congratulations to the 2021 finalists:

In FY2021, The Collection supported the Indigenous Art Code’s ‘Our Art Is Our Lifeline’ national media campaign, which aimed to support the Indigenous art industry through the global crisis and promote fair and ethical trading. In FY2022, the balance of our funding supported the implementation of an Artist Engagement Officer, currently 3 days per week, working to process artist member applications and an increasing number of artist enquiries.
