Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards
The Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA) are back for 2018 with entries coming from every state and territory across Australia.

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) is delighted to announce 67 works have been selected from 308 entries to be part of the country’s most prestigious national Indigenous art awards, the Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA).

Significantly this year Telstra NATSIAA has attracted residential entries from every state and territory in Australia. In 2017 Telstra NATSIAA welcomed a new generation of artists with the creation of two new categories – the Telstra Multimedia Award and the Telstra Emerging Artist Award. This year, the number of entrants in these categories has grown, reflecting new talent and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.

Presiding over this year’s Awards, as the Telstra NATSIAA judging panel will be artist Daniel Boyd; Director of the Ian Potter Museum of Art at the University of Melbourne, Kelly Gellatly; and artist Judith Inkamala, senior member of the Hermannsburg Potters.

Collectively the winners this year will receive $80,000 to assist in their career development. The seven winners will be announced at an awards ceremony and exhibition opening at MAGNT on Friday evening, 10 August 2018.
