IMAGinE awards 2018

The IMAGinE awards recognise the people who work in museums and galleries across NSW and the contributions they make. IMAGinE celebrates all institutions and pays homage to those organisations run by volunteers, with limited budgets and minimal resources. These awards offer a unique opportunity for museums and galleries in NSW to advocate, promote their achievements and raise their profile within the sector and the broader community.

The 2018 award categories are:

  • Exhibitions Projects
  • Engagement Programs
  • Capacity Building, Capital & Sustainability Programs
  • Individual Achievement

We are also excited to announce the inaugural ACHAA Award for Excellence by an Aboriginal Curator.

Nominations close 5pm, Thursday 16 August 2018.

For more information about the IMAGinE awards please contact 02 9252 8300 or imagine@mgnsw.org.au

 

IMAGinE awards night
The awards presentation night will take place at the National Art School on Friday 23 November 2018 (6-9pm). All nominees are eligible to purchase discount early bird tickets before the nomination closing date. Please read the Guidelines for more information.
